I am not really a fan of chili pepper, but other members in my family are, so I started growing many kinds of peppers several years ago.
Every other year, around March, I start a job of planting chili pepper from seeds. This time, I only planted small round and small thin types of red peppers. Those peppers have a very hot taste, especially the round one, which makes me have a runny nose when eating them.
Sometimes, I have to eat them, because most of the delicious dishes, which my wife has cooked, contain a lot of hot peppers.
Following are the steps to grow chili peppers from seeds.
Remove seeds from pepper fruits, then lay them down in a soil pot. Sprinkle soil lightly over them.
Peppers germinate and grow better at a moist soil temperature around 75 F degree. So water the soil and keep it warm by covering it for about a 2 weeks period if needed. When seeing seedlings appear, remove the cover.
Keep watering until seedlings grow about 6 inches tall, then transplant them out. I usually transplant them into soil pots.
Check the soil is moist enough for the plant to facilitate growing. You will see flowers come out after a few weeks.
After 5 months or so when the fruits change color to red, it is time to harvest. Peppers can be kept in the cold section of a fridge for use year round. Enjoy!
