Growing chillies indoors for the first time. What should I think about?

Mon Feb 29, 2016 7:10 pm

I'm growing chillies indoors for the first time. Do you have any general advice for me? My apartment have windows with fairly good light during the spring and summer season so I hope that the light will be enough. (I have shared some pictures of my Jalapeno plants in another topic before.) I have transplanted the plants into bigger pots one time. :-) This is what my plants look like right now:

Your plants look good! If the plants "run" and looks like they are getting thin you will need to add extra light, but they look good so far so i think they are alright. My advice would be to start water with nutrients and some added epsom salt after next transplant. The epsom salt contains magnesium that is good for the chilli plants. Just add 1 tablespoon of epsom salt to 1 litre of water. I can see that you grow Tabasco. I am growing Tabasco to and its my first time growing Tabasco this year. Good luck!

I will look into epsom salt. :-) The plants are growing fast. Do you think it is time to transplant them to new pots now?

Yes I think you can transplant them now. They look good. Well done! I transplant my Chillis about 4 times before planting them in the final pot. Just be careful with the roots, and the plants will be happy when they are transplanted. :-)

More photos of my chilli plants. Some of them are growing really fast and some are more slow. Most of them seems to be healthy and they just have different sizes. i dont know why they are growing so different but guess its ok. :-)

Thank you heatherdarko! Had a regular spot light on them when they first started to grow. After that they were on the window sill. I don't have any real grow light. 

Adding a picture of how they look today.

Sharing some more photos on the progress. I have moved the plants into my indoor greenhouse just to save some room on my window sills. One plant has a purple flower. :-)

That is so exciting! You are so lucky to have such great conditions indoors. I have one pepper that is doing very well so far. No blooms yet. I'm not sure I should share it on the site though. It's a bit risqué (well when it fruits anyways) I should ask Sanna lol.

My Flat is now a chilli jungle. it is very nice but a bit crowded. The plants are really getting bigger than i thought when i started the seeds in december. Some plants have very many chilli coming. This is how the plants look today. i am soon moving to my new house and it think that the plants will be one of the first things to move. :-)

The chilli plants have moved to the house and seem to like it. :-) I really have a lot of plants. Maybe I'm crazy but I love my little jungle.

My chilli plants are really growing bigger and healthier every day. They seem to like it in the new house. Some chillis are starting to turn red already!

Your plants are looking great! Very good job considering that it's your first season growing Chilli Plants! Maybe it's to early to ask but I'm curious.. are you planning to grow Chillies again next season?

They look very good even though the Pots are quite small. I guess you feed them with Nutrients?
