I am planting some chili pequins in the ground and in 5 gal pots in
Central Texas. Do the pots need to be moved indoors in the winter.
If so, what temp? Thanks for any advice you can give
More important than temperature (besides freezing of course) is how well
you've acclimated them first, lighting being especially important. Same as
for much any houseplant, really.
I've grown them on under fluorescents and gotten fruits (all be they
proportionally as small as the leaves by then).
As we are halfway into March, I have to say you sure think long term.
A lot depends on the variety you actually have and your zone, as well
as how motivated you want to be. Do you want to overwinter them or
keep them producing year long? I feel you would harvest enough this
fall to satisfy a pepper high through a winter so as to take the easy
way and just overwinter them. Besides chiles are not a high dollar
item in Texas to justify the extra effort. Then it is just a warm
sunny corner and a drink every now and then.
Check Dave's Garden or google pequins, bird chile, or ask around.
I've never known a Texan to be shy about giving advice, especially
about their State Chile
