Plant Care

Watering

Wet the seed starting mix. Push your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and make sure it is damp. Excess water should drain through.

Light

Indirect sunlight, 6 to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves. The second set of leaves are the first ‘true leaves,’ and a sign that your plant is getting mature and ready for serious growth. Dilute a balanced fertilizer to ¼ the strength recommended. Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

Product Bio

Green bell peppers, also known as sweet peppers, are popular in gardens for their crisp texture and mild flavor. Here’s how to sow and care for green bell pepper seeds:

Timing and Location: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date. Choose a sunny location for transplanting, as bell peppers require full sun to thrive.

Soil Preparation: Use a well-draining, nutrient-rich seed starting mix for indoor sowing. For outdoor transplanting, prepare the garden soil by loosening it to a depth of about 8-12 inches (20-30 cm) and incorporating compost or well-rotted manure to enhance fertility.

Sowing: Sow the green bell pepper seeds ¼ inch deep in seed trays or small pots. Space seeds about 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) apart. Cover lightly with soil and gently water.

Moisture and Temperature: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Maintain a soil temperature of 75-85°F (24-29°C) for optimal germination, which typically occurs in 7-14 days.

Thinning and Transplanting: Once seedlings develop two sets of true leaves, thin them to ensure they have enough space. Harden off seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions for a week before transplanting. Space the plants 18-24 inches (45-60 cm) apart in rows 24-36 inches (60-90 cm) apart.

Care: Water the plants regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. Mulch around the plants to conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.

By providing the right growing conditions and care, you can enjoy a plentiful harvest of crisp, green bell peppers.
