The Bhut Jolokia pepper is not too difficult to grow as long as it get decent soil,peppers don't like peat moss.Keep the soil moist but not soggy and cover the top with plastic to create some humidity,if you give it bottom heat over night the seeds would germinate faster maybe 3 weeks.I grew about 20 plants this year and they definitely need a very large pot or put in ground later as they get very big.

One other thing be sure to soak the pepper seeds in a paper towel at least two days before you plant them.
good luck!
