Default If you could grow peppers in pots indoors which would you choose?

I know little to nothing about growing peppers right now. I'm doing my research and was interested in growing some peppers indoors in pots. What kinds of peppers are you growing? I prefer cayenne peper flavor and milder.
I'd like to hear your experiences and what you'd recommend and why.

Thanks!

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

I like "Aurora" because they're everything I want in a hot pepper...the right amount of heat, grows great in a pot indoors, and it's totally ornamentally beautiful as well. The fruits turn a rainbow of colors.


I like "Gypsy" for sweet peppers indoors. Easy to please and gives an impressive yield. Will also produce even in cooler temperatures, like in a cool winter window, as long as it's bright and sunny. Gypsy grows great in a pot as well.

Well of course I am of the opinion that it is better to grow EVERY plant from seed!


If you want a medium-heat and more mild hot pepper..."Fish" may be the type for you.

Aurora Peppers! Well I will keep and eye pealed for some of these and give them a try. Although I am addicted to Jalapeno
Yes I have had OK luck with growing Jalapeno inside . I did it just to see it I could do it on my kitchen window a southern exposed window. Tasted great but were a little small

Now that is one of the funniest things I've read all day. Thanks for the laugh!


Oh yes, Richard is one of our finest...and gardeners with years of hands-on experience can't hold a candle to textbook information.

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

Another fantastic and interesting variety for pots indoors, and one that I'm currently growing, is "Marble". It's a very appealing and attractive looking plant...






The fruits look like little colored marbles that turn an array of pretty colors when they ripen...





As cute as the fruits are, they're fairly hot too. I enjoy hot pepper plants that are ornamental and beautiful to look at but that pack a bit of a wallop too...





The seeds sprout easily and the plant thrives in an east or south window. No pollination is needed on indoor pepper plants, whatsoever. I do fertilize my capsaisin plants though with an organic flowering/fruiting water-soluble solution called DNF (Dutch Nutrient Formula).


I just harvested a whole bunch of ripe peppers off this little plant recently, but it's blooming again and setting new fruits.


The blossoms are just so darn pretty...

I wish I had your array of windows! I have the corner of the building where I would really like a window lol.
My seeds should be in by monday and I'll start my FIRST 'from seed' fruit/vegetable.
I ordered 20 seeds and they are the rainbow bell peppers. Wish me luck!

Yes, my windows are a gardener's dream.


I'm sure you'll do very well with your veggie seeds. Just use a good quality, well-draining soil or soil-less mix. Using a mist bottle too will help your seeds come up nicely. Getting some experience will be fun for you.


Vegetable seeds are incredibly easy to germinate so they're a good choice to start with.


Keep us posted and let us know. Good luck.

I have my soil and pots ready... now to get my seeds. I'm guessing it'll take about 2 weeks or so for the seeds to germinate, but that's ok.
I think i'm going to try to grow it in a plastic container with a lid to create a sort of greenhouse effect. Hopefully it works.

Hey Richard.
Of the types that you had listed above are all of them good to grow in pots?
I'd be interested in a sweet to mild pepper that would grow well in a container.
Thanks

Hollyberry,
you don't happen to have any extra seeds for your marble variety do you? That plant looks healthy and very attractive.

Any pepper can be grown in a pot but a number of the types Richard copied for his list would not be ideal for indoors...unless you had a big enough set-up to accommodate them.


Yes, of course I have lots of Marble seeds and can certainly share. It is one cool plant and perfect for indoors because of the manageable size.

I grow nearly all of them in pots. For a mild pepper I would recommend "Biggie Chile Hybrid".

When I refer to "Sweet Peppers" I am not including "Bell Peppers". One of my favorite sweet peppers is "Corno di Toro Yellow".
