I've been growing bell, jalapeno, and cayenne peppers for a few years. This year's plants are out in the garden, and the biggest are almost a foot tall.

But, I have a question... has anyone grown ghost peppers (Bhut Jolokia) before?

A coworker of my husband's gave us three tiny peppers, and I got about a dozen seeds out of them (actually out of one, the other two were seedless). I know it's not an ideal time of year to start pepper seeds, but well, I'm an impatient gardener. I have four of them in a moist paper towel now to germinate. I want to put the plants in containers so I can move them into my sunroom for the winter. I don't really expect fruit this year with such a late start, but I'd love it if I get some. Does this sound like an OK plan to the more experienced folks here?
