I feel ya on poor germ rates. Funny how all the seeds are kept in the same tupperware type container, been prepped the same, and some go nuts, others just don't germ. I did have a MoA germ the other day, after like 6 weeks The tiny cotys end to end are like 3/8" . Meanwhile, the ones planted at the same time are forking and trying to bud.
I've been slacking big time on keeping up with my seed collection...
Mine were damaged because we moved them out of the house into the garage during the renovation of our house out in California. It gets super hot in there and they spent the better part of three years out there. I am hoping some of Annuum seeds dealt with the conditions a little better.
Not giving up on the originals just yet, but...
1x Chocolate Bhutlah Pepper Seeds
1x Black Magic Tomato Seeds
1x Black Zebra Cherry Seeds
1x Moruga Satan Strain Red Seeds
1x Scotch Brain Strain Yellow Seeds
1x Caramel Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Seeds
1x Jigsaw Pepper Seeds
1x Bhut Orange Copenhagen Seeds
These are from Pepper Joe's. Still haven't received the seeds from Pepper Lover, but I did get the ones from CPI.
This Jigsaw is an ornamental that looks sort of like a tri-color variegata...The ones from pepper Joe's are the ones that were trying to contend for the world's hottest.
I also put down one more round of some of the original seeds with a long H2O2 soak this time plus some of the Annuums that I had in there to see if they do any better than the Chinenses. I also planted the Douglah from CPI...something is gonna happen and when it does I hope my next problem is running out of space.
Thank y'all for checking in!
