Grow some of the hottest chile peppers in the world, we show you how to germinate your chilli pepper seeds:-
 All hot pepper seeds are very sensitive to the cold, ensure plants are well established before planting out in a cold house or outdoors. Grow in a conservatory, greenhouse or indoors on the windowsill. Chilli pepper seeds require high temperatures to produce the hottest chillies, too much water, nitrogen and low temperatures will reduce the pungency of the fruits. Chilli pepper fruit does not set below 15C and above 33C, flowers can also drop if night temp exceeds 25C. The red chile peppers are the hottest.
Scoville ratings are approx,   150,000+ is really hot!!!
Chilli Pepper Seeds germination; Sow seeds early as some hot peppers can take 120+ days from transplanting to fruiting. Temp should be maintained at the indicated temp 25-30C chillies will germinate at 25C but will take longer 30C+ is the preferred temp, Jolokia, Trinidad's, Scotch Bonnet, Tepin, Pequin and Habanero chilli pepper seeds can be slow and erratic to emerge (allow up 35+ days for germination) compost should not be too moist to prevent the seed from rotting, keep chilli seed & seedlings out of draughts.

The chile cultural information should be used as a guide only, I have found a number of different sowing techniques for the same seed from different sources there does not seem to be a standard. With this in mind you should use this website as a guide only, you probably already have a tried and tested way of sowing different pepper seed. As a rule of thumb the larger the seed size the more cover it requires, and fine seed like Lobelia Begonia etc requires no cover.
