I saw that, Curtis, thanks! I noticed, though, that he was talking about growing herbs indoors, not peppers. All I can do is try. With any luck, by the time they start to get super leggy, I will be able to get them outside.
Right now, I am nursing cuttings and drying peppers in my seed starting set-up, so there's no rush. Besides, the seeds haven't finished drying yet. Someone said to give them at least two weeks. Then I suppose I'll either do the hammer test or just plain plant them.
The Frankenchilies are drying, one drop of moisture at a time. These peppers seriously like to take their time about virtually everything. Following is a photo of them hanging out with a few little friends. The big ones are along the back. There are a few from the other HBC II plants on the right side. The rest are Fish, Super Chilies, and Habaneros.
This is kind of fun. However, the more they dry, the more certain I am that I will probably wind up with only one or two tablespoons of powder. The Fish peppers have already dried to a fine, translucent papery texture. I'm going to start many, many peppers next year, and I am going to dry them all outside!
