Good soil, good air, good genetics.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind, always.

that's what I did, just basic stuff and let the genetics in the peppers come out. The bad part was the peppers were so hot, no one could eat them. Mine were scorpion peppers and you needed gloves to even pick them
Feed the soil not the plant

I grow Ghost peppers every couple of years. I tried Carolina Reaper last year but I couldn't get them to take. I find keeping the soil slightly dryer than I do for my MaryJane works wonders with the ghost peppers. As far as nutrients go, I give them the organic BigBloom from FoxFarms here and there along with CalMag.

Funny story. My first Ghost pepper plant and the largest I've grown , grew in an abandoned hydroponic pot I tossed outside as trash after I thought it failed to take. The roots loved the stagnate hydro mix at the bottom of the pale. It thrived in there for 6 months only getting rain water from time to time. The harvest from that plant lasted me 5 years and I was giving peppers away like hot cakes.

Good Luck

Good soil with good drainage in a large pot. I use fish emulsion and feed them often early but back off when they flower. Keep them moist but not wet. This works for me but I grow harbeneros and jalepenos as I like flavour rather than ridiculous heat. Have to plant some again soon. Also have a big bird's eye that grew by itself.
