|Grow your own hot chilli peppers Seed
A corner of my dinning room at home, 207 plants,
amazing what you can grow in a small corner.
This is my selection of Bih and
Bhut Jolokia plants, under the white foam is a cable
and sand propagation setup with another 8 trays of
40 germinating seeds.
It is easy to make your own
chilli seed propagator, here I use an old biscuit
tin lined with a freezer bag. On top of that is a
double sheet of kitchen paper. I have 2 separate
lots of seeds so I have split the tin in half. Put
the kitchen paper in and spray with a mister bottle
of water, boiled and cooled if in high chlorine
area. If you smoke make sure you wash your hands
before touching the seeds.
The seeds are then placed
around the damp paper, sprayed again to wet the seed
and a damp bit of doubled paper over.
A piece of cling film stretched
over the tin and hole pierced in the top to let it
Put in a warm place and check
every day for mergence and to make sure it is still
