Hi, I'm Stan De Freitas, "Mr. Greenthumb", for On Gardening. Earth box, great technology, good way to grow. Now we've got the earth box, we've got our soil in it, we've got water in it. We've got everything we need just about, except small plants. And here we have habanero. And I sometimes will go to the nursery and just buy a little four pack, or six pack of plants, and this habanero; if you want a hot pepper, you can't get a whole lot hotter than the habanero. Now what I typically would do would be to take your little area, take your razor, cut a little X in here, and you'll have a place where you can open up the little area. If your plant is a bit root bound, go ahead, and gently pull these roots apart, and you're going to make a little hole with your fingers, and plant it about the same depth that it was growing in the little four pack. Now normally on a earth box I would either plant four or six, sometimes one or two, depending on the size of the plant. Habaneros will get to be, oh, probably take about ninety-eight days for them to be ready to harvest. For On Gardening, I'm Stan De Freitas, "Mr. Green Thumb."
