I'm impatient now, I want to harvest my hot chillies but they are orange in color and only than they should be deep red that fully mature. I'll probably wait a week to! I got a tip from a chili buddy from Brazil “stop watering when the olives ripen becomes much hotter as chillies” I have no idea if it works and I don't think I'm going to try then the risk of vermin is great if I let the pots dry out completely.
PS. My plants are doing well in the basement and growing fast. It is soon time to cut them down and take cuttings!
