ORNAMENTAL PEPPER - Capsicum

This is a plant that is grown for its colorful fruits. These 1", pointed, non-burning fruits start out green, then mature to yellow, orange and red.

TEMPERATURE: These plants like average warmth. Temperatures should remain in the 65° - 75° during the day and 60° to 65° at night.

LIGHT: Bright light is a must for happy, healthy, heavily fruited plants. Provide some morning or afternoon sun.

WATER: Keep the soil moist at all times. We usually grow these plants in clay pots so ample watering is a must as the clay will dry more quickly than plastic.

After flowering and fruiting, the plants should be discarded. Treat them as an annual.

These are seasonal plants that are available once a year in 4" clay pots.
