  • Planting Instructions:

    1. Sow: Begin indoor planting between mid-February and late March.

      Bottom heat of 80–90°F (27–32°C) is essential for pepper germination. Seeds will germinate in 7–8 days at that temperature.

      Utilize a soil-less growing mix and sow seeds approximately 6 mm (1/4″) deep. Maintaining the growing medium temperature at 21°C (70°F) will optimize germination

    2. Grow seedlings under bright light and within a temperature range of 16-21°C (60-70°F) to foster robust, sturdy plants. Transplant after hardening off, typically early June. Optimal conditions include full sun exposure and well-drained soil.

      Space plants 30 cm (12″) apart in rows with a 60 cm (24″) gap between rows.
