Hot Pepper Plants is a pleasure to plant. At first, they may seem a little tough to deal with, but with patience and persistence, they will reward you with sweet, spicy flavor as well as attractive flowers. Sometimes, it just becomes a competition to grow them. They may even outgrow the little tiny containers that you started out with. They’re easy to grow, is the real game.
How to plant vegetables with extreme temperatures? It’s not as hard as you may think. The real game is, how many times can you consume the peppers that you plant? There are actually some milder varieties of hot pepper plants, such as poblanos, which are somewhat less spicy, or do you take the full heat of Cayenne pepper, which are extremely hot?
One way to soften the impact of the heat is to grow your peppers in pots. Although companion planting tips suggest that you start growing in the spring and have your transplants in the garden by the end of summer, I have found that they do better if they get some time in between, a month or two behind the heat of summer. This allows the plants to acclimate to the warmer temperatures. You should place them in the pots after they come out of the garden and just before the beginning of your main growing season. That way, they will be slightly acclimated before you have them in your garden next year.
When you’re starting out with your plants and especially when they’re about to burst from the ground, you need to put them into a partial shade to their location. The high nitrogen content soil encourages the growth of these fruits, so you want to keep it away from areas with a lot of high nitrogen, such as farm fields or lawns. High nitrogen levels in the soil to encourage the growth of fast-growing grass, and can cause problems with some plants. If you can’t seem to figure out where to plant them, go to a nursery and look at photos taken several years ago. This will give you a good idea of where to place them. If you can’t get a photo, look for a crop that is similar in size and color, such as corn.
In a cold frame, you don’t allow the plant to develop roots or form a structure of its own. It is best to start them in a glass vase indoors, and then place them outdoors in early fall. They will need to stay indoors until the weather starts to warm up to about 55 degrees Fahrenheit. When they start to turn golden and yellow, this is when you can place them outdoors. They should remain a safe distance from tall buildings and electric wires.
If you have tomato plants you might be tempted to water them each day, but this is not recommended. Watering your tomato plants each day, and especially if you have a tomato vine or two, will deprive them of essential nutrients. Watering your plants each day also causes them to become stunted, which is not what you want. Hot peppers have many fruit, so there will be plenty to water. You should plan on watering only once a week in the summer and then spraying the plants when the temperatures start to warm up to about 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the plants flower and start to produce fruit, they are going to experience two very serious problems if they are not properly cared for. If the fruit gets eaten by insects, the blossom end rot fungus will set in. This fungus will affect the entire crop of your plants and is one of the biggest concerns of gardeners who plant fruit trees or vegetable gardens with plants that are prone to this problem. The second problem that develops is from too much water. If the water is not completely removed from the soil before the plants come into flower, and it does not dry out in the final two weeks of the growing season, the fruit will develop fungus in the leaves and stems.
Hot peppers need full sun, so you will need to provide at least six hours of morning sunlight for each plant. In addition, you will have to give them an extra hour of evening light if you have full sun. When you are planning your garden and preparing your plants for flowering and fruiting, you should keep these points in mind. When you have established your garden, and you are ready to begin growing peppers indoors, you can vary your light timings and increase your temperatures, but you will still have to give your plants plenty of morning and evening sun.
