The First Transplantation

At the second half of January it was time to transplant several plants but I wanted to wait a bit longer. Thus, I began transplanting into larger pots in the beginning of February.

Before beginning with the transplantation I first mixed vermiculit with soil (Weibulls Simontorp blomjord - kravmärkt) which i put in the bottom of the new pot. Then I put in the plant and filled with the new mixed soil.


I conclude here that three plants did not germinate (2 Hot Lemon & 1 Scotch Bonnet Orange). I have to replant these later on.

More seedlings to see the light

Today, the 4th of January I transfer 1 Bhut jolokia, 1 Hot lemon, 1 Scotch Bonnet Orange, 3 Scotch Bonnet Red & 3 Jalapeño from the germination box to their new home under the light!

White Light/White Heat

It is the 3rd of january 2011, the sprouting seedlings have all been moved to a warm place under a white light. Having germinated in a climate that fluctuates between 25 to 27 degrees celcius I now try to keep them in somewhat cooler climate; somewhere just over 20 degrees. As of today I have transfered 13 plants under a light that will make them grow. 4 Jalapeño, 5 Chihluacle Negro, 1 Habanero Lemon, 1 Sweet Banana & 2 Bhut Jolokia.
