Just thought I would share a little of my excitement about having my first Bhut ever sprout this morning!

Unfortunately the cotyledon leaves are completely jammed inside the seed coat, which didn't fall off and shows no signs of falling it might not make it =(

RE: First Bhut Jolokia!

There has been so many mentions of these things on various forums lately that I finally had to break down and look it up just to see what they are. ;)

Congrats on your success. One tip to how to remove stuck seed coats - spit. Saliva enzymes will soften and dissolve the coat so that it will fall off. Just dab a bit of saliva on it and let it sit a bit then a bit more. Within a couple of hours it should fall off or be easy to remove.
