Dont bother with this pack!
The first germinations took about 9 days and 24 out of the 27 seeds included have germinated! (much more than I expected)
Two criticisms however:
...one is that on the box it says that it includes "one of the world's hottest varieties" ...this is not actually true, the hottest varieties in this pack are around 50,000 Scoville units, the hottest in the world are between 400,000 and up to over 1,000,000!!
...the second is that the "Coir" compost pellets provided are not really a satisfactory growing medium, I compared them with some of the same seeds I planted in normal compost and after a month the plants in the coir were much smaller and yellower than the others...
I think you'd be better off with seeds and compost from a garden centre...
Despite the inaccurate growing guides, which were about a month or so out of whack...the results have been fantastic and have far than exceeded my expectations!
I currently have 8 different plants growing, 3 of these are over a foot high with the rest under that. Everyone has started to bear fruit, with my biggest plant having 15, yes 15 4inch chillies growing from them. I am astounded, as in total from 3rd Sept 2010, i have 32 chillies in their various stages of growth!! The only problem is that the wood on which i wrote the names of the chilli plants has faded away, so i am growing the varieties without knowing what exactly each one is.
This has been my first ever time ive ever grown anything myself, which is accompanying strawberries, tomatoes, potatoes, sweetcorn, baby corn, broad beans..to name a few (Thanks hug-fearnley and jamie o!!) but i have been very happy with this pack. It just takes lots of patience, and transferring your plants to proper soil!
I would not suggest buying as a birthday/xmas present for a child, as they will get bored waiting. I am 24 and have been so busy with university/work that the time has flown by, but it has taken since April to finally get results!!
i put the plants in my airing cupboard ensuring they were well watered and they sprouted within 3 days!!! :D
they are apparently alot easier to grow when germinated so back to the kitchen they go :D
