I got this kit as i like chilli's so thought i might give it a try, I have never tryed to grow any thing, and did not think i would get it right.
I planted it about 2 weeks ago and it started to grow, out of the 3 seeds i planted in 1 pot 2 have started to grow. Every day i check to see if its any bigger can wait to i have some chillis to try :)
Got this for my boyfriend for christmas and it does say on the box that it is intended as a novelty item, so we were't holding our breath for anything fantatstic, but we are both pleasantly surprised you get about 6 or 7 seeds of each kind of plant and all but one type have sprouted and are growing nicely on our window sill.
My boyfriend loves hot food and cannot wait to try them when they grow but i think he may have a while to wait just yet, the types of chili's that come with this set are very varied in heat types but apparently the tepin variety is one of the hottest chilli's known.
All in all the only dissapoint we have had is that the tabasco seeds didnt sprout but there is still time and because it was a christmas gift they were'nt planted straight away as advised so they could have de-natured whilst sat under the chrismas tree.
