In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in seedling mix and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 18” apart or into large 3 gallon containers. Can also be directly sown into warm garden soil. This pepper is a beautiful ornamental for the patio and can make an interesting small hedge too.
I bring my potted onamental pepper seeds indoors in the winter time. You can treat them like a houseplant so long as you include a grow light, or you can trim the branches back and let them go dormant in a cool, dark basement.
