Hi Guys, i am new to this forum and found this thread so thought i would
add my thoughts..
I grow alot of chillies each year, this year will be around 200 plants
(by the time i have finished) or 40 or 50 varieties. i start them in a
heated propagator set to around 25 degrees, this is because most of the
plants i grow are classed as super hots.
I use peat free jiffy pellets for germination as they are easy to handle
and give good results, i have started this years seeds and already have
over 50% of them pop their little leaves up :)
this is the first year for many years i am not using a T5 propagation
light to get them started but they are in a sunny window so all will be
fine i'm sure.
i do not feed my plants until they start to get flower buds on them and
then they get 1/3 strength tomato feed a maximum of once a week until
they start to set peppers then i increase the strength of the feed..
I usually get a very good crop of chilli peppers in all shapes and sizes
