It's easier to get chili seed to germinate if given a warm environment!

Some chili seeds can take forever to sprout Yes 4 – 6 weeks, it may take some times before looking up from the Earth. One way to speed up the groningen is to set the sowing in a warm place or you can use a heat mat which is designed for growing.

With a heat mat, even the most troublesome seeds germinate at 1 – 2 veckor. You should try to keep a temp of 27 – 29 degrees. If you have a thermostat that you attach to the rug, it is easier to get the right temp. You can also measure the temperature with a normal thermometer that sticks down into the Earth or what to germinate, and then set the effect to the mat with the power button if it is present on the heat mat.

Here's a little video that shows one of the heating mats that I use.

    Hello there!! I was wondering if it is good to have their plants on the heat mat even after gro time ?

      Hi! When my seeds germinated, they may remain until they had their heart leaf. Heat accelerates the development. Since I usually do not have heat.

        Thanks for the reply 🙂 I have some questions about the origin of the plant. In any State if you want to crop, one should wait until ?One of my plants have begun to get buds and it is no more than 15 cm in height. Stable strain and much leaves. Want it to grow more in height , or can I just pull the buds ?

        • Stig Häggkvist says:

          Hi! There is no need to prune chili. To remove some leaves and a branch to the light to get into more of the plant can be done but I do first in June when the plant itself.

    OK . Have heard a lot about just the notion that top the plant to provide a more buskigare plant ..

    • Stig Häggkvist says:

      Hi! It depends a lot on the kind of man to top the plants. Should it be done, it should be done early in January when topping delaying fruit and here in the North we have such a short season. I tops not my plants is no reason if you treat them right from the start. Start early and driving up the plants in the cool temp around 18 degrees with lots of additional lighting so the early branching out by itself.
