Chili thrives best in tropical and Subtropical climates, and need lots of light,
both in summer and in winter, just as they would receive in the wild.
Light and temperature is just as important, because they both individually and together are a prerequisite for plant metabolism is enabled and that is precisely what makes it difficult to take care of chiliplantor during winter. Simply put, it works like this: The more light a chiliplanta may (which enables time photosynthesis), the warmer the plant must be to achieve a metabolic rate that is sufficient. The more heat a plant may (which increases metabolic rate), the more light is required for photosynthesis to
If chiliplantan is not getting enough light for winter storage, at the same time as the metabolism becomes too fast because the temperature is too high a turnover of the plant more than it can generate by photosynthesis. In other words, eating away the at itself.
The bottom line is that you get to customize the light, water and nutrients in
relation to temperature.
The better we understand chiliplantan and how to influence it during hibernation phase, the better to deal with the whole situation. Then it's easier to find the övervintringsstrategi that fit depending on the where to store the plant. It is also possible to change some things in the event of problems.
My more detailed advice on wintering.
Storage in low temperature approx. 15 – 17 degrees.
Place the plant in a bright place, at a large window. With extra Lighting at least 10 hours/day, it is easier to manage. Low energy light bulbs or fluorescent light works great as a replacement lighting.
If the pot is directly on a cold floor, Set the pot on a piece of styrofoam that insulates well, It is customary to speak of "hot heads and cold feet" If you for example have the pots in a cold basement floors that hold a temp of 12 degrees and the room temperature is 17 degrees working roots slower than the hot sheets, which stress the plant and can cause it to lose its leaves.
Add no nutrition in October – frbruari
Water sparingly with soft, temperated water 1- 2 times were 14 day (just wet the Earth easy) the Earth will not be kruttorr and the plant should, of course, does not dry out completely.
Storage at room temperature approx. 20 – 24 degrees.
Place the plant in a bright place, at a large window. With extra Lighting at least 14 -16 hours/day, it is easier to manage. Low energy light bulbs or fluorescent light works great as a replacement lighting. In the winter in a warm place, you must water the very gently and adjust water quantity to the situation, the hotter it is the more water the plant requires but it needs then even very light. Be especially careful not to water too much and make sure that the plant is not with the roots in water. It is more common to plant drowning than they dry!
Water sparingly with soft, temperated water 1-2 times/week, Add a

Yes it was a bit more in depth how chiliväxter works and what I like to think about to succeed in both wintering and when you power up the seedlings.
