Because most chilisorterna have a long development time it is possible to start as/förkultivera at the end of december to February depending on variety.

To do this, follow these steps

You can order chili in the kind of smaller pot at any time provided it has holes in the bottom. Square plastic pots 8×8 cm are useful because they take up little space. There are also small mushrooms cubes (Root Riot) that is very handy when at transplanting can bring down the whole cube in a pot with soil and thus do not interfere with the roots.

  1. Fill the pot with seed compost and press a chilfrö in every pot, about 0,5 cm deep. So 3 to 5 seeds of the varieties you want to grow as some seeds may not germinate.
  2. Water since plentiful. A spray bottle is a good idea to use. Cover the pot with filter cloth or plastic wrap or place it in a minidrivhus with lock. Place your sowing in a warm place, chilifrö germinate facilitated at a temperature of approximately 25 to 29 degrees. It needed no light when the seed to germinate. It is important to keep the soil moist at all times but not soaking wet. The air if there is condensation.
  3. It can take about 1-3 weeks for chili seed to germinate so you have to be patient. When the seed germinated, and the cotyledons have developed, they should be at a temperature around 20-25 degrees and light about 14-16 hours per day. The plants need extra lighting unless the natural light enough and it does not have in Sweden during the period from november to March.
  4. When chili plant have developed their first true leaves (character sheet) and that the pot is properly genomrotad it's time for transplanting/retraining in the larger pot and soil, such as. The Weibull rose soil or any other good nutritious soil on bag, do not use inexpensive potting.
  5. Choose a pot that is about 1 – 1,5 liters.. Pour a little clay in the bottom of the pot, fill with soil as you can with 10 % Perlite and plant so deeply to heart leaves end up in the same level as the soil in the pot. Cultivation temperature should now be reduced to 16-20 degrees (turn off the element). Watering through the pot securely.


Watering regularly, watering a lot when you water instead of dutta. After about 3 weeks, it's time to gödselvattna plants. There are a lot of different nutrient solutions to buy but common flower nutrition so that Flourish can be used, There are also special nutrition for chili o tomato. It is better to give the plants the tiniest bit nutrition every time you water than giving a big give nutrition on a few occasions but just take ¼ part of the bottle and mix in the water to irrigate with.

When the plant starts to grow out of the pot, it's time to repot into a larger pot, Choose a pot that is about 4 to 6 liters. It is better to plant a few times than to choose a big pot from the start as a big pot holds more water and then can damage chiliplantans roots that do not like that with your feet in the water.

    It's always fun to watch in this blog and are always interesting posts! What I find most difficult is to regulate the temperature. What are the effects on the plants unless you lower the temperature by the growth but retains the around 25 degrees? Även om lysrör inte genererar så mycket värme samt att jag har ett par fläktar som rör om en del så blir det ändå rätt varmt i min lilla växthörna 🙂

  2. Stig Häggkvist says:

    Effect if you do not lower the temperature gets to the plants grow faster and then becomes often more elongated and not as sharp. At a lower temperature and very light so the plants become stronger, chubbier.

  3. Michael Vinger says:

    Great guide! Just want to add that it is not a good idea to water as usual the first time after transplanting, but have a little know how much plant drink.

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! Well to be a little careful. If you have well drained pots so it wont be a problem when excess water runs out.

  4. Pär says:

    I have never understood why my plants was so rickety but now I try to plant them deeper. I have thought that I would plan them in same level.

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      That the plants become rickety depends most on that they receive too little light compared to the temperature.

  5. Daniel Karlsson says:

    It could be förkultivera in an aquarium with tropical fish tank lights on 6500 k gets around 26-27 degrees in the Aquarium.

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Yes you can secure good. When the cave and got a few leaves, it is better to make it a little cooler.

      • Daniel Karlsson says:

        A question for when you put out the seedlings in non-woven. To have son on my balcony deck from 10 to sunset. How long are you supposed to have them in the canvas to get used to them in the Sun. Between your thumb and index finger ? Thanks for the reply. The first time grower here.

        • Stig Häggkvist says:

          Hi! Hard to tell the exact time, but in the first week, it is a good idea to protect them for a few hours in the middle of the day against the strong sun.

  6. Andreas Andersson says:

    Hey Stig

    How deep would you say that you should repot the plant after first transplantation. I have been to me that someone said that you could put it so deep that almost the whole population up to the first pair of blades hidden? Could it be true?

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! You can plant them deep then chiles puts roots by the stem so that the tomato. I usually stop them down so that the cotyledons next touches the earth. They are long and rickety one can stop them down even deeper.
