I have Datil, Naga Morich and Bonnie growing. They all have their first leaves. Still quite small and slow growing. I'm home all day, so I can move them out to get full sun, and bring them in before it gets cold. I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow.

Here you go. Sorry for the crappy pic quality. My camera kinda sucks. I ended up with three each of Datil and Naga M. and four Bonnie. I'll keep two of each and pass the leftovers to a friend.Click image for larger version

Just planted on 4/16, so I finally have some photos of all of my plants sprouting up!

Here you can see seedlings of at least three Datils in the back, the Naga Morich front-left, and Brain Strain front-right. I was amazed that they sprouted so quickly! I've heard that super-hots tend to take longer to germinate, some 30 days or more. These were up in about a week or less.



I also have some Mucho Nacho jalapenos growing (middle row of cells) and red habaneros, as well (front two cells):



Off-topic, I also have a mess of tomatoes growing...



...as well as loose-leaf lettuce and beans...



...and okra:



Should be an interesting garden this year.

Very nice!! I hope you get enough good days to harvest.
Some of my supers germinated very fast too. Must gonna make good plants, right?

I just got mine in the ground on saturday. 25 or so different variates of peppers and a couple different kinds of tomatoes. I think my wife got a couple of cucumber plants as well.

I do about 70 hot pepper plants every year (for hot sauce) for the past 5 years with about 40-50 tomato plants and about 30 eggplants but this year cutting back on the eggplant.....just can't eat that much and a bother to give away. Then we grow just about everything else in the rest of the garden.

Yep, I was really surprised that they germinated so quickly. I didn't get all of the seeds to come up, but that's fine. I don't have room for a ton of plants in my garden. It's just a 16'x4' raised bed.

I'm thinking I may pot at least one of the Datils, so that I can keep it over the winter. Although, I don't have a south-facing window. So putting it somewhere that it gets enough light may be difficult. And I really don't want to run grow lights all winter.

Shouldn't be a big deal, since I plan on saving seeds from all of my peppers anyway. I can always replace them if they die over the winter.

Ok, well my plants are all producing nicely. I'm just not sure what I'm going to do with all this heat! Also, like an idiot, I forgot which plants were which. I've got red, yellow and orange peppers. Datil, Naga Morich and Bonnie.
