For those peppers to be growing in a pot..they sure are doing just wonderful.

These were 2 gallon pot Puppy, 2 GALLON POTS not 6 " they don't get root bound that way heheh. I was just remembering last year. N you only need to water them once every 2 weeks. Dont use Miricalgrow soil....not good. Use an organic soil compound like Blackmagic with this stuff that I use

Well I got lucky this year with the GC seeds..I planted about 25 seeds and 2 came up into 2 very beautiful plants..I need to take some pics so you can see "your" plants.
There is one pepper about 2 inches long and probably 100 tiny flowers about to open up. As difficult as GC's are to grow from seeds, guess luck was on my side.

Well you should know, heheheheee.
I got Devils toung bout that size but still green. They dont turn red or orange but Yellow with a heat range just behind GC only at 100,00 instead of 1.5. Dont know what the flavor will be like, I hope sweet to a citrus flavor, It is a hybrid prolly from GC mixed with a Hungarian yellow which resemble a Banana pepper which Tavy commented on an earlier post. Can ya feel what the CHILI'S" Growin? OOO YESS!! OOOOO TY Jesus for our Chili's from your bounty!! Amen
