Growing Chilli Plants from Seeds

Thu Jan 05, 2017 2:26 pm

New season, new Chilli sowings! I usually start my Chilli Plants in December to make sure that they have a long enough season to finish. This year I got really late (for being me) and started my Chilli Seeds Today. 

Starting Seeds
Tray is ready.. bottom half filled with regular Planting Soil, top layer is Sowing Compost. (If you want to see more details on how to Step-by-step start the Chilli Seeds - check out this topic from last season: Growing Chillies from Seed.)

I'm only starting half of the amount of Chilli Plants that could fit in this tray. For the first time ever I'm (so far) practicing "less is more".. Let's hope that I don't suddenly feel the urge to fill the rest of the positions.. ;-)

New varieties this season

  • Tobago Seasoning (Habanero)
  • Granada Seasoning (Habanero)
  • Jamaican Hot Chocolate (Habanero)
  • Dorset Zinger
 
 
Except of the varieties listed above I started:
 
 
So here is all of them:

Plastic lid was added and they were placed under Grow Lights. Looking forward to watch them sprout and plan to update this topic as they grow.

I transplanted my Chilli Plants about 1 week ago. This is how they look now.

Chilli Plants are growing and I've started to feed them nutrients every week. Some are a bit leggy, but most of them are compact and looks good.
