200,000 - 350,000 units on the scoville scale.

Naga 'Bhut Jolokia' Chilli - One of the worlds hottest chilli peppers, this extraordinarily hot pepper produces lime green chillis, later turning an orange-red colour, which should be used sparingly.

Carefully open each bag of compost, fill each pot with compost and water lightly.

Open 1 sachet of seed at a time and sow on the surface

Lightly press the seed into the compost and gently cover over.

Water again if needed, compost should be damp to touch but not waterlogged. 

Pots can be covered with plastic bag to create humidity and placed ina  warm area for 1 week to start germination. 

Continue to water when needed and remove plastic bag once seedlings emerge.

Place in a sunny, warm spot and do not allow the compost to dry out. 

Pinch out the growing tip of the first flowering shoots to promote more branching and therefore increase your harvest.

As your chilli plants start maturing, its best to keep them a little on the dry side as stressing them very slightly helps to produce hotter peppers.

Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking.

When growing chillis indoors, do not forget to open windows and doors to provide insects with access to the flowers to ensure good pollination, alternatively you can hand pollinate chillies - simply move from flower to flower touching the centre of each once with a fine paint brush. 

Chilli plants are very hungry and will benefit from regular feedings. Once the fruit start to appear, feed weekly with a high potash tomato feed.
