Pictures will come in the morning but the seed came from pepper joe
Wait how do I add a picture? Noob question I'm sure but help me out here lol
 
Easiest way to add a picture is to upload it to imgur and just paste the link here. You can also embed pictures by right clicking and opening them in a new tab so that you get the direct url.  Click the image button in the editor and paste the url into it.

Well the first one worked try this again



I was expecting more of a deep red pod like I asked am I just to impatient?
Aside from the color I'm really excited about them turning color this is my first ever experience with hydroponics or super hots and I have succeeded this is awsome.

Not only have I succeeded and superhots and hydro but as you can see I have already started this summers outdoor crop 111 plants in total made up of 7 different kinds only one of them not being superhot
Everybody was right peppers are addictive
 
Those actually look a lot like the "Trinidad moruga scorpions" i got from pepperjoe.com. I put that in parenthesis because they didn't seem to be Trinidad moruga scorpions at all. I'm afraid to tell you that the guy above me may be exactly right. Seeds you get from there seem to not grow true pretty often.
 
Yeah a few aren't true but a few are temps at night are a little bellow optimal I expect better results when everything warms up a bit I'm honestly not to worried about it though as this was my first try for hydroponics and peppers for that matter the fact that these came from seed to this point in 4 months if I recall I started them around this time in Sept I'm really happy with the results I also have no intent of letting them die so hopefully I can increase the number of blooms that take to pod and just keep it going. Any thoughts on the pod color at this point?

The Reapers I bought from Joe grew true, and I was very plaesed. On the other hand out of the six "Moruga Scorpion" plants I grew last year from pepper joe's seeds, only one of them grew to what is advertised and is widely accepted as the typical Moruga Scorpion.
 
Ok I promised more pics just getting to it a little late but here they are.







I tried to get better shots of the sunken tails hope everybody enjoys the pod porn even if they aren't exactly true to form.
The last one is my favorite so far it doesn't even look friendly by far the nastiest looking so far.

I have reaper seedlings from there so that is good to hear. I posted pics of some of the moruga pods and no one seemed to know what they were.. But i also didn't get very many because I planted them late in the season 
 
I've alread got this years outdoor crop started they are doing great under a 400w hps 110 is the current count 7 different types mostly super hots I will post a pic of those real fast as well
I've got reapers, trinidad scorpion chocolates, 7 pot primos, trinidad scorpion morugas, red brain strains, 7 pot merlots, orange peter peppers and then some randoms to the far left that I pulled from an order from bakers.

They have only been under the light well today is the 4th day.
