Does anyone know anything about this pepper or where it's seeds may still be bought? Apparently it's a pepper variety that takes 25 days to flower and was developed in 1978 but was discontinued in the 1990's. It's a sweet pepper but it's novelty, compactness and efficiency intrigue me. The plant ittself is so small but it bears fruit larger than the plant itself and occupies little space, I must grow this!
Hydroponic growing / Hydro Medium questions

Im wondering, does expanded clay texture make much difference? is fine better than medium?
When you place the plant in the hydro pot, do u you work the roots the through growth medium or do you just dump the growth medium on top of the roots? and how much of the roots needs to be in the medium/resting in the reservoir/dangling in the air?
Traditional growing / Deep pots or wide pots?

since most plants only grow as big as their roots allow, I was wondering what kind of pots do peppers like? I only have so much growing space so I want to use the smallest space per plant possible. Do pepper roots grow outward or do they prefer to grow straight down?
I just bought a packet of 7 pot seeds from a licensed dealer in florida, usa and inquired about buying in bulk. He told me that he could not because he has almost sold out, but instead said he had a little known pepper called sucre fuego that he has plenty of but because of it's lack of fame it hasn't sold well for him, but he says it is in fact hotter than the 7 pot pepper! I am very much interested needless to say, but I have never heard of this pepper before. Apparently it is a chinense from venezuela. He supplied this info:
"Heat: Dangerously Hot; do not believe this pepper's heat has ever been measured; but, they are definitely hotter than any habanero including the Scotch Bonnet and 7 Pot / 7 Pod.
Pods are habanero in shape about 2" long by 1.5" wide with the characteristic pimpling / wrinkling found in most hot peppers.  These peppers are extremely hot going from green to bright red when mature, flowers are white. Pepper plants can grow three to four feet in height, full and good producers."
It looks in color and shape like a red habanaro but has that bhut/7 pot prune wrinkle on its skin, but a little smoother. Why haven't I heard of this pepper before? Does it go by another common name? Does anyone know?
Traditional growing / Indoor growing

If I wanted to grow a pepper bush indoors permanently, what size pot would be adequate so as not to impede the roots?
Other growing & lighting / 90w Led Trial
lokakuu 22, 2009, 19:06:02 ip
Well, I was gonna wait to post my results until I had a few weeks of growth but I'm too excited, so I'll post results daily.

In this trial I have 2 bhut jolokia sprouts and an adult naga jolokia(excuse the puny size, I am an amateur, I know, and this naga has been growing in a cramped pot in a poorly lit spot with no fertilizer).
The 2 bhut jolokias were grown together from and separated(rather brutally  :-[ )
The smaller bhut was grown under a 15 watt red blue led(just a test), it grew a little, but not much. The bigger bhut was grown by a sunny, south facing window. Keep this in mind when looking at the results as the smaller bhut grows quicker as it was acclimated to the red blue light before this trial and therefore better adapted to red blue led's than the bigger bhut.

The light I am using is a 90 watt, 7:1:1 red blue orange light, 630 nm, 460 nm, 600 nm
Is it ok to give a chili plant 24/7 sunlight while still in the vegetative state? Would running a low powered grow light all day be just as effective as running a high power light normally?
