Grow Guide - Chilli Pepper

How To Start: Sow chilli pepper seeds in moist, well-draining compost. They need warmth to germinate and you should see seedlings appear in 7-14 days.

Temperature: Between 18-25℃ at all times (germination, growth)

Light: Chilli plants thrive with at least 12 hours of light per day, ideally a 12 to 16-hour photoperiod with 8 to 12 hours of darkness.

For indoor growing, We recommend germinating with 12 hours per day for the first 5 to 6 weeks using the Pianta grow light.

Raise to 14 to 16 hours per day for two to three weeks.

Watering & Care: Slow growers until the summer, so water once a week until the hot summer then water twice a day if needed. Chillis like warm and humid environments so grow on in a greenhouse in a sunny spot.

Fertiliser: High potash tomato fertiliser

Pests: Aphids, greenfly - remove with a soapy water solution

Height: Up to 3 metres

Time Of Growth: Between 60-120 days from sowing to ripe fruit
