About 24 hours ago a friend of mine gave me two mature Pequin Chili pepper plants. The Chilies weren't potted, but the rootballs were still intact. So I suspended them, pseudo-hydroponics style, in a cut in half milk carton filled with some water, and plant food. My aim was to keep these little jewels alive long enough to get them potted.
I recently potted them with a soil mixture of 7-3, soil and perilite. I unfortunately don't have any window space to give them sun. So I placed them in my bathroom that has a built in heating lamp. I'm hoping the warmth from the lamp, and the light should be enough to keep them healthy.
I've never tried to grow chilies before. Do you think my little red hot lovelies stand a chance? I'm sure not being potted in soil for more than 24 hours diminished my chances. What do you all think?
