* So, you decided to combine business with pleasure - to grow peppers at home.
One plant can be kept on the windowsill for 2-3 years. For normal development, he needs a pot with a volume of 1-2 liters.
The first rule is cleanliness. Scald the pot with boiling water, you can add potassium permanganate.
If you have a supplementary lamp, then sow starting in January. If illumination is not expected, then it is better to wait with sowing until February.
At the bottom of the pot, put a small layer of drainage from fine gravel and charcoal so that the water does not stagnate.
From above, pour a layer of nutrient soil (humus, leafy soil, sand - 5:3:2). Fill a pot with this mixture, pour boiling water over it, and when the soil cools down, sow 2-3 seeds, pre-soaked and swollen, to a depth of 1-1.5 cm.
Now put the pot in a dark and warm place, covered with glass or plastic wrap, to create a greenhouse effect and speed up seed germination.
When the seedlings hatch, transfer them to a lighted window. Do not leave your pets unattended - constantly moisten the soil with warm water.
Care for these peppers, feeding (every 10-15 days) are the same as when growing tomato seedlings.
