Growing Hottest Peppers -
Water Requirements - Only water once the soil is completely dry and just before leaves start to wilt. Extremely high temperatures can cause leaf wilt and can trick beginners into watering when not needed. This leaf wilt in high temperatures is a defense mechanism and water is not needed in this scenario. Check soil moisture before watering if unsure.
Fertilizer Requirements - A vegetable or tomato fertilizer is required throughout the flowering stages. These types of targeted fertilizers will have all the required macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients pepper plants need.
Look for fertilizers with a higher Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) than Nitrogen (N). Example NPK 10-30-20. The first number, nitrogen, is lower than the other two values. If your fertilizer doesnít have Calcium listed, spray leaves with diluted Cal-mag once a month.
Container Friendly - Carolina Reapers and Ghost Peppers can be grown in containers or in the ground. If grown in a container a minimum size of 3 gallons is required, but 5 gallons is recommended. The larger the container, the larger the plant. 10 gallons seems to be the perfect size of portability and growing potential.
Plant Size - A Carolina Reaper and Ghost Pepper plant will grow up to a maximum of 5 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet across.
Productivity - 90 days from germination to harvest. Expected harvests for each plant can be up to several pounds over an entire season.

The Bhut Jolokia also is known as Ghost Pepper, is an interspecific hybrid chili pepper cultivated in the Northeast Indian states. It is a hybrid of Capsicum Chinese and Capsicum frutescens and is closely related to the Naga Morich of Nagaland and Bangladesh.
In 2007, Guinness World Records certified that the ghost pepper was the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. The ghost chili is rated at more than 1 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs). However, in the race to grow the hottest pepper, the ghost chili was shortly superseded by the Infinity chili in 2011, followed by the Naga Viper, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion in 2012 and the Carolina Reaper on 7 August 2013.
