About Capsicum: Capsicum is a perennial flowering plant in the family of Solanaceae and is native to the Americas. Capsicum is cultivated worldwide. It has many verities like Aristotle, blits2, California wonder, Gourmet, Jupiter, Touchdown…etc. Capsicum is used for making different types of dishes.
How to Grow Seeds in Flowerpot: We can grow capsicum using seeds. Seeds are similar to green chilly, and seeds are white in colour. Seeds are easily available in the market or online stores. For plantations, always use fresh seeds. Early winter is the best time for the seedling.
Prepare a Soil Potting: Most beginners used garden soil only, but it’s not the right method, and good results are not produced. For making a good quality of soil potting, take out the same quantity of well-drained garden soil, vermicompost, and sand, or you can also use coco peat. Mix it well. Follow these steps:
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot or grow bag (size 10*10).
- Please take out the fresh seeds and plant them in a soil mixture (1/2 inch deep).
- Cover all the seeds with the same soil mixture.
- Give water properly and place the pot in a semi-shaded location.
Within 7 to 8 days, sprouting starts from the seeds, and new leaves and branches appear on the plants. If a plant grows up to 5 to 6 inches, then we need to transplant them.
Before Plantation: USDA hardiness zone should be 9-11. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use ceramic or clay flowerpot. The distance between the seeds should be 1 to 3 inches apart.
Transplantation: Transplantation is necessary if you have planted 5 to 6 seeds in a single flowerpot (small pot) otherwise don’t need to transplant them. While repotting, you can use the same soil mixture with phosphate powder (20gm). Use a large flowerpot (size 12*12).
Best Caring Tips
- Watering: Do not overwater. The top layer of soil potting is drying up, then given water properly. Use a spray water gun.
- Temperature: Keep the plants in a semi-shaded location during the summer season and, in the winter season, place the plants in full sunlight. Recommended temperature is 15°C to 25°C.
- Best Fertilizer: For the best results, fertilization is necessary. After 30 to 40 days of planting, give vermicompost, fish emulsion, bone meal, and cow dung manure. Watering is necessary after fertilization. It is easily available in local nurseries, or you can buy it from online stores.
- Pests and Diseases: If any insects and diseases occur on the plants, don’t forget to spray medicine on the plants—pesticide liquid for insects and fungicide liquid for diseases.
Best Time for Harvesting: After 3 to 4 months of planting, flowering starts on the plants, and within days, the fruit begins on the plants. Fruits are glossy light to dark green colour and sizes grow up to 3 to 4 inches and spread up to 2 to 3 inches with round shape.
