Transplanting a Chocolate Bhut Jolokia Plant

I had two chocolate bhut jolokia pepper plants growing in the same DWC bucket. It was getting crowded so I decided to try and transplant one of the plants from the dwc bucket to dirt. Have never tried this before and no idea if I did it right…

Step 1 – removed net basket from dwc bucket, remove as much of the hydrotron as possible.

Step 2 – cut back roots as close to net basket as possible. Removed plant and any excess hydrotron that was stuck in the roots.

Step 3 – trimmed off a little more of the roots and then planted in dirt. watered thoroughly and set by window so it gets some natural light.
