Chilli is not as easy to form roots along the stem as tomato but if a plant has become a little rickety, pulled off on the height because of low light in relation to the temperature it is possible to recycle plant in a deep pot.


Here it is a “Carolina Reaper Hot Pepper AKA HP22B” as my mother kept in a bright window that pulled away too much in height according to me. I pick some leaves along the stem to be able to put it down deep at the retraining to a 4 liter roskruka.

I fill in with a layer of rosjord at the bottom of the pot and press to the easy then just putting down the plant in the pot and then fill in with soil. Now it looks really nice out or, more accurately, so it looks like I want it. I hoses carefully and put it under my fluorescent lamps, There will now be at it's time for the plants to come out.

You should not plant his Chiles to deep if it is not necessary when you can get rot on the trunk which is underground if it keeps the soil too moist so I let it dry out just in time before watering again.

PS. I have 5 St “Carolina Reaper Hot Pepper AKA HP22B” plants and it is only this that gets this treatment.

    Can you plant if other types of chili like this also? I have a plant of the variety “Cayenne long slim” (I think anyway that it's called) and it has become very long and rickety!
    BEST WISHES, Frida

      Hi Frida! Yes it can be done with any type of chili pepper. Your Cayenne can you plant deep. It will set new roots after the tribe.

    Hi! Raises an old thread…
    I am just ready to put on my “Peter” Chili, they are developing the first real leaves the couple, can I now put them a little deeper to get them a little “stabbigare”?

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! Yes you can put them deep now. If you want to have low stabbiga plants so you should have plenty of extra light and a little lower temp around 18 degrees. The hotter it is, the more light energy requires plant.

    Hi I have a few questions that would be fun to get answers to.
    What about Woody thick trunk, is it possible to plant down Woody thick stem deeper and will develop Woody roots from the chili which is down planted?

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! Is the Woody, the harder to put roots in the lower trunk, but it has worked.
