I have multiple containers going with more than 1 plant. I used to frown on this so I would sow one seed to one container. In situations where a high % of germinations fail I would be left with a lot of plant- less containers. I have as of this year modified my growing procedures. I plant 4 seeds per container and leave them grow til I am ready to plant separate containers. Then, rather than disrupt the root systems of multiple plants, I cut below the media level the plants selected for extending the crop and place them in a cloner. Within a week I have good root system starting and ready to plant out in two weeks. This frees up considerable room and my grow can be increased at will.

Not sure I understand what you mean. Are you indicating that more than one seed germinated of multiple seeds planted in the same containers?
If that is the case, you have read instructions to remove them because at maturity, both or more plants will be competing for the same root space, nutrients, water and light. One plant per container is optimal for the highest output of fruit and the healthiest plants all around.

I believe many of the bhut crosses to kitty Kat names are based on the PDN X **** bhut jolokia where **** is the color of the bhut being crossed.

Generally up to a month with superhots. Sometimes even longer but they can pop in as few as 3 day as well.
