Cultivation Advice Hot Chilli Pepper Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Red

  • This variety can be difficult to germinate and therefore not for the novice.
  • Germination requires constant soil temperatures of between 28-30C. In the UK it is best to supply bottom heat with the aid of a propagation mat or propagator. The seed is unlikely to germinate without additional help in an average UK central heated house.
  • Soil based compost is best and should be fine and free-draining.
  • Germination in 14-28 days, patience is required.
  • Sow from Feb onwards in the UK indoors with heat provided and lightly cover with vermiculite if possible to 1/4in depth.
  • The seed does not require light during germination; however, once the seeds have germinated you need to provide adequate light for the seedlings.
  • If intending to move to a cooler conservatory or greenhouses in early summer gradually acclimatise the plants both to the higher light levels and temperatures.
  • Please note this variety is not suited to outdoor cultivation in the UK at any stage and will not appreciate unheated glasshouses in early spring until the weather warms.
