WOW! Wish I would have seen your post earlier, I think I could have helped you out more. But I'll try to help a little now.

I see you've received some seeds already. One thing you must remember is that super hot pepper plants like Habaneros have a longer growing season. It's also very important that your night time temps and your soil temps are no lower than 55deg F.

When I grow Habaneros and super hot peppers it normally takes at least 90 days outside in warm weather for the peppers to set and ripen. And also an additional 8-12 weeks inside if you're starting from seed.

You can grow your pepper plants in 5 gallon buckets or plant pots of a similar size if you're short on yard space. If you do grow in a container remember to use POTTING MIX! Not potting soil or garden soil. Do not over fertilize or over water.

If you want some good advice on growing plants and peppers check out
"The Gardenweb Forum"
It's a very good site, and this is getting close to the time when you start seeds here in the US. So there should be a lot of info on there now. Good Luck!
