How To Grow Peppers Indoors

How To Grow Peppers Indoors

Peppers can be grown indoors if given the right conditions. One quick and easy solution would be to purchase an aerogarden available on this page. I have one and it is very low maintenance way to grow vegetables indoors. ( Peppers will grow in an aerogarden) Another option would be to follow the instructions on this page.

First thing you will want to do is decide what type of peppers you will want to grow. Some will do better than others if grown indoors. Research the varieties you want to grow and see if they are suited to grow indoors. Some are better than others but most will probably grow indoors.

Second thing you will want to do is decide on a location for your pepper plants. Pepper plants will need to be in full sun or be under a grow light to be able to produce peppers and be healthy. Make sure the space you choose has plenty of sunshine or a sufficient grow light. Also be sure there is enough space for your pepper plants to grow. If you are unsure how much space or sunlight your pepper plants will need the pepper seeds or pepper plants you get should have instructions on the package as well as  requirements. Your local garden center can also assist you.

After you have decided on the varieties of peppers you want to grow and found a space to grow them you will want to get your pepper plants or pepper seeds and growing supplies. You will want a pot or container large enough for the roots to grow in, Potting soil, Pepper plants or pepper seeds. You may also want fertilizer, bug spray, or other gardening supplies but some can be bought as needed.

Once you have all your supplies you will want to plant your peppers. I would suggest 1 pot per plant unless you have a large pot or container. If you buy pepper plants you will want to loosen the roots at the bottom before planting. When planting bury the roots and make sure there is plenty of soil below for the roots to grow in. You will want to water them shortly after planting to reduce the risk of shock to your plants. If you plant seeds just fill the pot with potting soil and plant the seeds according to the instructions on the seed packet.

After a while your pepper plants will be established and will start producing flowers. Peppers are self pollinating so you will not need to pollinate the flowers to produce peppers. You may need to apply fertilizer or bug spray. Ask your local garden center for advice of how to apply them.

You can harvest your peppers at the desired stage and enjoy your harvest.
