Are you brave enough to try one of the world’s hottest peppers? Red ghost pepper isn’t for wimpy palates—make sure to have a cold glass of milk by your side when you taste these fiery beauties! While the plant grows slowly, it produces plenty of fruit that start out green and mature to fire-engine red. Whether you use the peppers in hot sauce, salsa, or 5-alarm chili, remember, handle them with care. Wear gloves and long sleeves to harvest, and keep cut peppers away from your skin. Protect your eyes, too. Just a bit of a ghost pepper adds extreme heat to your recipes, so use sparingly. Grows beautifully in garden beds or containers. Add a cage to your pepper plant at planting time to help support stems when heavy with fruit. Place in full sun, and feed regularly. Scoville heat units: more than 1,000,000. Matures in 100 days.

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
