Thumbs up Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

Wow I'd love to see shots of that Peruvian Purple pepper...sounds like a beauty. I bet it's ripping hot too.


Yes Tommy, I misted the pepper for the picture. Pepper plants love to be misted. It keeps them clean of mites and other pests as well. I also shower my pepper plants indoors each week...to further deter pests from moving in. Edibles growing inside are very appealing to bugs so you wanna keep on top of things before problems arise.


I'm sorry Richard, but that "Biggie Chile Hybrid" is a ridiculous recommendation for a beginner just wanting to grow a potted indoor pepper plant!


I expect that Tommy is looking to grow something in a pot in a sunny window, and a giant 24" tall plant with an 18 inch spread wouldn't be appropriate for most indoor locations...unless Tommy has an HID light system but I don't believe so.


If you want something more appropriate and manageble for indoor growing Tommy, this type called "Little Blue" would be another good choice...





It's excellent in only a 6 inch pot and the fruits are super hot. I have lots of seeds for them as well, if you are interested.

I like the tabasco pepper much better than the commercial Tabasco Sauce. I don't care for the vinegar in the latter.

Talking Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

Another amazing variety to grow in a pot if you want serious heat, and ornamental beauty, all at the same time, is "Fire Cracker". It's said to be the one of the hottest chili peppers in the world! Here's one I grew in my window a few years back...





Side view...





I have many seeds for this type as well and it's the one people request from me the most. I used to have a Portuguese neighbor who would ask me for a few of them sometimes. One year I gave him and his wife a whole plant for themselves. My neighbor upstairs too, is currently growing them in his south window after I told him how to do it successfully.

Hiya Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

Or even just a simple and inexpensive fluorescent light system set-up. Not to rush you into things though...in time you'll know what you need.


I've grown some pretty cool smaller pepper plants under my four foot long fluorescent system and I think I paid around 50 or 60 bucks for it.


I can share some of my pepper seeds with you to get you started if you'd like.

Hiya Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

I saw your Purple Peruvians, MaGoo, and just as I suspected...they're gorgeous.


Here's variegated "Fish" pepper plant in a pot...





You may enjoy "Black Pearl" Tommy. It's the black pepper plant in the shot...





"Fish" and Black Pearl" look terrific next to each other...





Let me know if you'd like seeds for any of them as well. I grew all of them from seed, indoors.

Hiya Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

Don't forget too, that extra seeds can be preserved in the fridge for many years to come...so no rush to sow them all at once.


Sorry, but ask anyone around...it's NOT possible for me to mail ya just 'a couple seeds'!!!

They are medium-hot, meaning about the same heat as Serrano and Cayenne. The flavor is different from either of those.

Smile Re: If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

The flavor is different than any other hot pepper on the planet, not just the two Richard mentioned. They have a smokey flavor to them and they are of medium heat.


A most unusual and gorgeous looking plant with variegated leaves and fruits. Here is one of my striped fruits from a couple months back...





"Fish" pepper is a truly unique African Heirloom variety. A must grow.

Nice little pepper there. I hope I have the patience to watch my little pepper seeds germinate. I'll have to keep an eye on them to see when they need watering.

Very good results there.The tomato, chili and the peppers are looking great and quite rich in its content. Here all the plants are looking suitable to grow indoor and need ton take any of them.

I grow peppers inside too. =) I grew sweet banana, long red cayenne, poblano, and red habanero peppers inside last winter and they all made peppers and the windows are not that big. Im going to grow a ton of different peppers inside this year. I grew mine in dirt and sand and miracle gro potting mix.
