Growing a Chilli Plant

Growing a Chilli Plant

A chilli plant is a good option for your home or your garden. It will generally be fairly easy to care for, and best of all, if you do care for it well, it will reward you with lots of delicious chillies to cook with.

The main thing is to make sure your chilli plant has plenty of sunlight. They originate from hot countries where they will get plenty of sunshine throughout the day, all year round, so this is very important. A chilli plant that doesn’t have enough light and warmth will not grow many chillies for you, and it might wilt and die. You should place it in a sunny window, and if you keep it out of doors, put it in a greenhouse or bring it indoors in the winter.

You must always keep your chilli plant well watered, but without over-watering it – remember it has come from warmer countries where rain is scarce.
