How To Grow Chili Peppers Steps

According to the video tutorial above, here is how to get your very own chili peppers growing from seeds.

  1. First, you’ll need to get your seeds. Be sure to choose the types of peppers you want to grow carefully. Choose your favorites and buy a good quality pepper, to begin with.
  2. Cut the seeds out of your pepper. The best part is that you can still eat the pepper, just save the seeds. If they’re looking a little wet, let them dry on a plate in the sun for an hour or two.
  3. Now you can prep your planter. You can use an old plastic box with a lid as they did in the video, or buy a sprouting planter. Be sure to plant the seeds about an inch apart so they have room to sprout their roots. Give them a small amount of water in the beginning, and again whenever the soil looks dried out.
  4. After about 3 weeks your sprouts will be ready for transplanting. Choose a small planter that won’t give your plant too much water, and pat down the soil to be sure there are no air pockets. You won’t need to water them every day. Just watch for signs of dryness in the soil, wait a day or two and then give them a good drink.
  5. After another 10 weeks, your plant should be ready for either outdoor planting or a large planter. Follow the same steps for planting and watering. In just a few short weeks, you should have peppers ready to eat!

Heat Levels Of Chili Peppers

This guide shows the heat levels found in different peppers. Although you might have your favorite types, you can use this as a guide so your garden has a range of spices. Obviously, if you are sensitive to spice, you can also use peppers that are lower on the scale.

The Scoville scale measures Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) and ranges from 0 to 16 million. The lowest heat on the scale would be a simple bell pepper, while the hottest measured is pure capsaicin.
