Grown ghost pepper a couple times, forgot where I bought seeds, but I saved some and should still have a few if you want some I can look for them.

Start seeds real early, mid February, keep under fluorescent lights 12-16hrs a day until it's warm outside (no frost) then gradually acclimate them to full sunlight over 1-2 week period. Once they are "hardened off" you can plant them out when it's warm outside and all danger of frost is past (late April early May)

Ghost peppers are late producers, you'll get 1 or 2 fruit in the summer and most of the flowers will fall off, then by September they all will start turning into fruit and you'll have a 4-5 foot tall pepper bush loaded down with some painfully hot peppers. At least this has been my experience. They definitely set fruit later than other peppers, and the plants can get real big

I don't know bout the other varieties you mention but I know the ghost pepper (bhut jolokia) let me know if you want a few seeds.
