For a healthy crop, fill your container with loose soil mixed with rich compost.
The Chilies seeds should be soaked in water as it increases the chances of them germinating.
You can also use a damp paper towel to germinate them.
Chilies flourish inconsistent temperature so make sure they don’t get more than 8 hrs. of sun, as it will dry the seedlings up real fast
Grain and protein supplements bring a lot of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium onto the farm
Once they have more than 4 leaves, you can transplant them as per your preference.
Chilies are plants that condition themselves to the environment provided so those who have grown a lot more indoors will not be able to adapt if they are put outside in the later stages.
You can rectify this by hardening the plants with at least a 2-hour exposure to the outside environment.
Chilies start flowering and fruiting after a month and do not grow well along with weeds.
Now since chilies have male and female flowers, pollination is required.
You can allow it to do so naturally with the help of bees or you can use a small paintbrush to gently brush the flowers of every plant.
Do not wipe the pollen off as it will contradict the very use of the brush for pollination.
After the chilies start giving fruit, use a spray to water them to avoid overwatering.
The plants only need 2 inches of water so spray accordingly. Make sure you harvest the plants frequently.
