Purple Thunder / Bhut Jolokia x (PdN x Bonda Ma Jacques)

I have decided to start a dedicated Grow Log for
the Purple Thunder Bhut Jolokia hybrid.

It made its first appearance in 2015:
"This coloration might be the result of the intense
light on these red Bhuts, but only 2/6 show the trait.
If it is a cross,the only purple-y plant near the bhut
was Trippa's Mystery Cross. All of these seeds from
the same pod:"

A little hot sun will work wonders on those,
Vivian. They look like they have a good
foundation for further growth.

Got my first PT flower! :) I didn't expect it to pop on the smaller of my two container plants, but I seem to be lagging in training my plants to listen to me! ;) Hopefully the bees are able to make their way in to find that one..... 🤣

I've got one more in a 4" pot that I will move into a 17" container with my SRP in a week. Did you guys warn me that this pepper thing is addictive? I can't remember........had to put a self imposed moratorium on sowing anymore pepper seeds. Six anemic plants last year to 17 healthy specimens this year! 🤣🤣

Hey, @rgreenberg2000 - I'd say you were making great progress!

Plant is really flowering nicely!

I've had a few flowers on one of my plants, but none have turned into pods yet.....hopefully this hot weather (and some nutes this week) will get them going! :)

Looks great, Rich! A little sun warm sun
will go a long way toward getting some
pod-setting going!

Those trimmed plants will turn into super
bushes in a couple of months! The PT
definitely like the warm sun.

Really nice and dark foliage, Rich!
My PT's really need some sun to
get their purple on. Do I see some
flower buds appearing in there?

Good eye, Paul, there are a bunch of buds.....you can't see them, but there are also some flowers on the larger plant.....hoping for a pod or two soon!

I had to report myself to the Purple Thunder Abuse Hotline this morning.....this poor guy is just not liking our latest run of heat (which is odd, since his neighbors don't seem to mind it at all......same soil, same watering schedule, etc!!) I'll get a support stake in the pot for this plant once he recovers a bit after watering...

Looks like the plant (same one?) recovered in good shape!
