Mary Jane


Dear friends of the green herb,

Thank you for visiting us at our booth at Mary Jane. We had great fun with you!

As you know, our beam cannot be used on cannabis plants at this time. But we are already in the starting blocks! Once legalized, we look forward to getting your seedlings to bloom. Our app has great features that support both individual and club growing.

In the meantime you can try to get the plant to grow in the pot. In the seed pot that you received from us, there is a coconut swelling tablet seeded with a cool chili plant: the "Scotch Bonnet" chili.

Why chili? Chili is a great plant to train with. Similar to cannabis, the "Scotch Bonnet" is a fastidious, personality-strong plant. She has different needs than cannabis, but if you can get the "Scotch Bonnet" ready for harvest, you can do that with cannabis too. Trust!

Here are a few care tips:

General Info

The Scotch Bonnet comes from Jamaica and is the Caribbean variant of the Habanero. It is often made into hot sauces together with Caribbean fruits such as mango or papaya. It has a tropical fruity taste with peach aromas. Depending on ripeness, watering and nutrients, the level of heat ranges from 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville - so it is really hot!

How to grow

Step 1: Germination

  • remove the coloured sticker on the source tablet, underneath is the seed
  • Drop some water into the nursery pot and swell the source chart
  • Cover with cling film or a small plastic bag.
  • Place the seed pot in a warm place at 25-30°C so that the seeds can germinate. A small electric blanket helps here.
  • As soon as the seeds have germinated and show small sprouts, you can continue.

Step 2: Germination and Planting

  • Drop some water into the nursery pot and swell the source chart
  • Cover with cling film or a small plastic bag.
  • Place the pots in a warm place (23-28°C) with plenty of sunlight. A small electric blanket helps here.
  • Check regularly whether anything is happening and whether the potting soil is still moist. If not, add a few drops of water.

Step 3: Make it bloom

  • After about 12-21 days you should see a seedling. Remove the plastic wrap.
  • Place the plant in a slightly larger pot with good quality, nutrient-rich soil .
  • The Scotch Bonnet need a lot of sunlight, preferably at least 6-8 hours a day. Get a grow light if you need to. You'll need them later anyway.
  • Keep the soil evenly moist, but not too wet. Water when the top layer of soil becomes dry.
  • Protect the plants from strong winds.
  • Keep the humidity high by spraying the plants regularly or by placing a bowl of water next to the plant
  • The fruits usually start to grow after a few weeks. The Scotch Bonnet needs about 120 days (after sowing) to ripen and be harvested.

Still unsure? Get a Beam and make sure your Scotch Bonnet gets everything it needs. Happy Growing!
