Take the hassle out of germinating seeds
Having a hard time germinating seeds or want to take the hassle out of growing from seed and get a head start come Spring time?
Our seedlings have been germinated by us under controlled conditions earlier on in the year so they’re ready come Spring. They will come with a minimum of 6-8 mature leaves, typically as pictured.
Plants have not been topped, as we leave this up to you. If you are unsure what topping is, please have a look at this video on YouTube.
We’ve germinated seeds from pods we’ve harvested from our own Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Chocolate mother plants.
What you get
Plants come in a 100mm peat pot, which is biodegradable. This means you don’t have to disturb the root system by removing it from the peat pot. Instead you can put the peat pot straight into the ground or into a larger pot, and the roots will continue to grow through the peat as if it wasn’t there.
If you’ve never grown a super hot variety before or gifting this to someone who may not have a green thumb, we send care instructions with all our plants. You can also check out our frequently asked questions or contact us if you have any other questions.

Chilli plants prefer tropical weather, and typically the best time to plant is in Spring. You will need to determine (based on the climate in your area) when the best time to plant is to avoid damaging or potentially killing the plant if there’s a frost risk.
Our plants require hardening, which means getting them used to the full strength of the sun by increasing their exposure over a 1 week period. Exposing them to full sun straight away may burn the leaves (they turn white and crisp) and stunt growth.
Please be extremely careful when handling chillies from this plant. Anything at or above the Scoville scale of a habanero (300,000 SHU) can cause severe pain if handled incorrectly. Keep out of reach of children. Handle ripe pods with gloves to avoid accidently squeezing the chilli and releasing it’s oils onto your skin. Do not consume on an empty stomach.
