    This hab was pulled from garden in 2007.It is root-prunned and stalk cut back and re-potted everyyear.

    March.Getting first shoot established.Slow going untill junes heat...


    Today.Going to make some jerk chicken and dehydrate rest....

    Ran out of cayene seeds and germinated 6 cayene from last years dehydrated cayene.

    True cayene

    1 of 6 was cross-pollinated.

    Cross on left of true.Cross has corking on skin like a jap....

    Had my first volunteer jap ever.Survived hard freezes and sprouted in garden.Not as big as my germinated ones,but couldnt throw it out...

    They get ripe as it cools here in maryland so plants start to go dormant.

    I believe richoso1 in california gets two crops a year from his outdoor plants.

    Do not have the lights for larger indoor plants,just germinating lights....

    I am going to build a terarium in future in house when i move that will mimmick a tropical environment...
