Sow in a heated room (18 to 21 °C) in pots with potting compost and cover.
Do not sow too much and cover the seeds with a layer of well-packed soil.
Give a limited amount of water.
Cover everything with a transparent grow hood (or cling film). Remove the cover or foil when the seedlings appear. Afterwards, transplant the chillies individually into 9-10 cm deep pots when the seedlings have some definitive leaves. Place them in a room with a temperature of 16-18 °C.
Let your peppers get used to the outdoors by putting them outside for a few hours a day for 10 to 14 days before planting them in the ground.
Tips to get the most out of your pepper seeds
To improve the germination process: immerse the seeds in lukewarm water the night before planting OR roll the seeds in a wet napkin and put them in a plastic bag. Leave them in a ventilated cupboard for a few days before planting. Chili peppers love heat: To increase your chances of getting really spicy peppers, it’s a good idea to grow them in a greenhouse or even on your windowsill in the kitchen. Sow your peppers as early as possible . It is ideal to sow the peppers at a temperature of 18 to 21 °C. Sow in small, shallow pots (no more than 5mm deep). Transplant them to a somewhat larger pot when there are two true leaves. Try not to touch the young roots when you transplant. Water the peppers regularly, but make sure the soil is not waterlogged. Sprinkle a layer of seed and cutting compost over the propagation pots to retain water and heat, two things that chili peppers love. If you want to plant the peppers outside, first let them get used to the outside air for 10 to 14 days by taking them inside in the evening. Feed the peppers with special tomato fertilizer.
