Sowing and Caring

  • To start seedling, choose a comfortable grow bag like the 24x24 HDPE bag. The seeds should be planted 0.5 inches deep and 5 inches apart from each other. If planted in rows, the gap between two rows should be at least 7-10 inches.
  • Soilless medium like coco peat should be mixed with the soil to keep the air circulation intact. 
  • It is advised to use organically enriched potting mix like the one we have
  • Keep the soil slightly loose for the roots to breathe. 2 part gardening soil + one part vermicompost + one part cocopeat is the optimal medium. 
  • Requires full sun for at least 6 hours a day. Can tolerate partial shade.
  • Water whenever the top soil dries out, until the soil is moist and not soggy. chillis need a lot of water to grow. Adding porridge water  is seen to boost growth. 

Harvest

  • chillis will be ready to harvest in 80-90 days after germination. 
  • Carefully remove the mature yields from the plants without affecting the newly grown flowers (yet to become chilli).

Common Problems

  • Caterpillars, Spider mites, nematodes, Trips, Aphids and Grasshoppers are common pests that affect the chilli crop. In addition, bacterial leaf spot is a common problem along with leaf curling. 

Precautions

  • Overwatering should be avoided and the soil should be well-drained to avoid fungal infection. Water only when the soil is dry 1-2 inches from the top. 
  • Prune the affected parts to prevent spreading of disease. 
  • It is advisable to add Neem oil fertilizer or pesticide like the one we have to prevent the attacks from pests and diseases. 
  • Vermicompost or any organic soil enrichers should be added once in 2-3 weeks to stimulate growth. Adding nitrogen-rich organic manure/ fertilizer like the one we have will stimulate faster growth.
