Product Description - Organic Big Chilli (Thondan Mulaku) Seeds - Open Pollinated

Chillies are easy to cultivate in pots in a greenhouse or in a warm sunny place outside after starting indoors. It contains antioxidant vitamins A and C, which aid in the body's detection of invasive germs and boost overall immune function. Peppers also contain capsaicin, a chemical molecule that causes the brain to experience heat or spice and has anti-inflammatory properties. When the Chilli seeds within the fruit Chilli are added to a meal, it gives it a spicy flavour.

Planting and care for big chilli

Sowing big chilli seeds

The ground required for Chilli growing is ploughed 2-3 times and fine-tilled. Gravel, stones, and other undesirable materials are removed from the soil. If the seeds are planted directly in the soil in the grow bags, the process is completed simultaneously as the final ploughing cycle. However, the soil must be sterilised adequately before ploughing to keep plant diseases at bay.

Chilli seeds are pretty easy to germinate, and initially, their only requirement is heating. Keep the seeds inside if required, preferably in a house or garage. Place the seed tray above the refrigerator or in the airing cupboard to keep it warm. Seed germination is aided by moisture because it softens the pods from which the seeds sprout. Before planting the seeds in compost, soak them in warm water for a few minutes to speed up the germination process.

Growing big chilli

The seeds may take anything from a few days to a few weeks to sprout. Once your Chilli plant seedlings have grown to roughly 5 cm tall and have 5-6 leaves, transplant them to a wider-spaced grow bag. It will keep their roots from becoming tangled. Carefully remove them from the tray. Water the seedlings before removing them to keep the compost from crumbling during the relocation. Fill a grow bag with compost that has a diameter of 7 cm. Water the compost lightly and dig a well in the centre. Fill the space with compost and place a seedling in it gently. As your Chilli plant grows, move it to a larger grow bag. Fill a larger pot partly with compost and create a well in the centre. Gently take out the plant and place it in the larger grow bag, covering its roots with a massive clump of compost. Place your potted Chilli plant near a window or outside to get some sunlight, but remember to bring it inside if the temperature lowers. The amount of light received by the plant determines the rate and size of its growth. In a spot that receives more sunlight in your garden with at least 6-8 hours of sunlight, dig a hole sufficiently to fit the seedling or plant. To promote proper growth, Chilli plants should be placed at least 45 cm apart from other plants. Fill the gap with an even blend of soil and compost and gently place the plant in the hole. If you reside in a hot, sunny climate, you should water your Chilli plant every day. To avoid over-watering, make sure the soil is damp but not soggy. Feed your plants with a general-purpose liquid every two weeks.

Harvesting  

  • Chilli harvesting is done according to the Chilli's intended purpose.
  • When the Chilli turns dark red in hue, the fruits are harvested for powdered and dried Chilli.
  • Plucking should be done consistently.
  • If you leave the Chilli on the plant for too long, the colour will fade, and the wrinkles will appear.
  • Chillies should be plucked 8-10 times, whereas ripe Chillies should be plucked 5-6 times.

Precautions while growing chilli

  • They are warm-weather plants that defend themselves from the cold, making sure they get plenty of light and water. The fruit that has been exposed to direct sunlight may become discoloured on the exposed surface.
  • You can either move the pot to a new area or put it near other plants to create shade at midday.
  • They're sturdy, but they need to be kept safe from severe winds, rain, and hail.
  • Weeds that have grown up around the pepper plant should be removed.
  • High heat and wind caused damage to flowers.
  • When watering, be thorough and thorough. The purpose of watering is to remove salt from the soil; repeated shallow watering causes salt to accumulate in the soil as the water evaporates, stunting or killing your plants.
  • Seedlings should be exposed to as much light as possible once they have germinated to create solid and stocky plants.
  • For optimal results, water chillies with water that has been sitting for at least 24 hours. The chlorine in the water supply is to blame.
  • Peppers will thrive in a pot as little as 6 inches, and the amount of the soil mass directly impacts the plant's size and yield.
  • Because plant roots require both air and water, pick a light, well-drained compost.

Common Problems affecting chilly plants and solutions

Problem: The bacterial plant disease pepper leaf spot can be found all over the world. The most prevalent weather conditions are rainy, humid, and warm. These are the most conducive circumstances for bacteria to multiply. Because leaf spot is a bacteria, it can be passed from person to person, through seeds or the soil. Use clean soil and irrigation to avoid splashing dirt on the leaves or cross-contamination.

Solution: Remove any leaf spot-affected regions of the plant, exactly as you would with virus-infected pepper plants. With the correct nutrients, pepper plants may be able to fight infections. Apply a Neem Oil BioPesticide in the early morning or late evening to help prevent the disease from spreading.

Problem: Another common concern with pepper plants is the mosaic virus. The mosaic virus can infect plants in various ways, and once infected, they cannot be treated. Mosaic viruses are propagated by sap-sucking insects like aphids and can be transmitted through seed or soil. They can also be transferred by coming into contact with diseased plants, and they're especially troublesome in dry weather.

Solution: There are no effective treatments for viruses. If a mosaic virus is detected, remove the pepper plants from the garden and destroy them if possible. To keep weeds at bay, use a ground cover or, at the least, a weeding hoe. Using your hands, you can spread viral diseases from one plant to another; hence keep your hands clean before and after gardening.
