    Chili Peppers (HELP)

    I was thinking of growing chilipeppers because I found tons of seeds in my food shelf.
    Anyone know how to grow these? I tried searching it up online, but it doesnt tell me what lighting I should use or soil. I was going to put peat in a plastic container and place a few seeds in it and keep it there until its big enough to be transplanted.
    I bet you're reading this huh?

    I would use potting soil, peat would be to low in nutrients. They grow well in my garden, shouldnt be that hard.

    I have two pepper plants (jalapeno, and bananna I think) growing along with my cp's, succulents, and house plants. They are doing excellent. Blooming already. I kind of adopted them from my plant mentor, when she decided they were not good enough for her garden.

    I'd put them in normal poting soil, under whatever lights you have, and water them like any other plant. If you don't have room inside, throw them outside and they should do just as good, if not better.

    You ask fifty different people how they water and you'll get fifty different answers. If you can grow cp's, pepper plants are a piece of cake.

    Have you tried the search feature? just kidding

    ChilE peppers are normal plants that grow in normal soil. If you are growing them indoors, just use regular potting soil.

    Yay for Chileheads!

    BTW...chili is the soup...chile is the plant.
