    shopping Are there any respectable places to get Carolina Reaper seeds or plants from Northern Illinois?

    I know I can order seeds from Puckerbutt, apparently the only online place well known to sell actual reapers after Pepper Joe's got sold off, and that a lot of places claim to have Carolina Reapers and other superhots but they are actually something else, but is anyone aware of any places in...

    seeds What would be a good time to plant Carolina Reaper seeds in Chicago suburbs?

    I see, dang, so it's too late now? I was worried that April would be too soon.

    seeds What would be a good time to plant Carolina Reaper seeds in Chicago suburbs?

    I haven't had much luck trying to grow these. Last year I came the closest and actually managed to get a few peppers.... but seems I had planted them too late and by the time they were really starting to bear peppers the frost set in and killed them. Didn't help that it was near-freezing last...

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

    Well.... this is becoming a disaster. :(   Started them on paper towels then transferred them to peat pods, issue is, I think I didn't bury them deep enough in the pods as at least half if not more of them seem to have zero foundation and many actually had the roots exposed if not flat out...

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

    Ok, so I have been checking the remaining bags more often as I don't want to risk ruining any of the others, especially the superhots. To my surprise, one of them has germinated already, even though it should be way too early since it's only been roughly two weeks, and the other free...

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

      Yeah, I know the superhots shouldn't be ready yet, I was just caught off-guard when the other free seeds I got haven't germinated yet but the Jalapenos should have been removed from the towels long ago.   Plus i was worried if I had damaged the Jalapenos or if the tap water could have hurt the...

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

    They did all have two leaves on them. On nearly all of them the seedling had grown to about an inch or so, I was not prepared for how fast they grew since the superhots are supposed to take several weeks to germinate and so far still look like seeds, even the other bag of free peppers I got has...

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

    Well, this is becoming a disaster so far, and I haven't even started. The free Jalapeno seeds that were included with my order germinated very quickly, far faster than any others who haven't germinated yet, I didn't even have any Soil/Peat Pellets yet to transfer them into. I finally got some...

    Thanks, that helps.   How hot did you set your mat? And if it had a probe, where did you place it to get accurate temperatures?   Also, you said you had to re-water the ones on the mat, how often did that happen for you?

    seeds Just started seeds in paper towels, should I use a light or heating mat?

    I just put several hot pepper seeds (Carolina Reaper, Brazilian Moruga, and Chocolate Moruga Brain) in wet paper towels to start them using this video (yes yes I know I am very late)    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDaiFGhxnRY    Thing is, do I need to put them under a grow light? Or not yet...
