Hot Pepper Seed
Some hot pepper varieties come from tropical
humid regions and some varieties come from dry desert regions. The temperature,
moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds.
Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause
poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil
becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have
experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products.
Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. Read the Hot Pepper Growing Tips and Planting Instructions for information on
growing hot peppers from seeds. Please take time to watch the Hot Pepper Planting Instructions Movie . Plants can grow 1 to 7 ft tall.
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so
you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.

This is a beautiful plant and will look great in the window of your house, or if you are like me and enjoy hot peppers
these little bad boys are great for your chili. Don't use too many or you won't be able to eat it but the plant will keep producing peppers as long as you don't let it get to cold or allow it to dry out. I loved my plant I had it for two years and it had grown to about 18 inches tall and about 40 inches in diamiter,I kept it in a large pot and would move to my porch when the weather was warm and would bring it back inside when the weather got cold. I would have it today if I had not went on a vacation for two weeks I left it with friends and had asked them to give it a little water every day and it would be fine. They forgot and left it in the window and it burnt up and I was unable to bring it back. I was very sad because I dont know if you can call a plant loyal but this plant never let me down it would produce a lot of peppers and flowers and I was even giving lots away. Once you get this plant established it will produce well for you.

My mother had one of these as did most homes when I was a child. The plant itself will live for a long time and the peppers make great pepper sauce.
