Today you will find out just how to grow peppers at home, in a short time and producing a bountiful harvest. We want to share with you the infallible remedy that will make you bring many peppers to your table.

To put this technique into practice, you must first buy a pepper from the greengrocer or supermarket. Cut it in half and collect all the seeds contained in it.

Alternatively, you can also buy pepper seeds directly in the store. Both in the first and in the second case there will be no need to wait for the seeds to dry but we can proceed immediately to sowing.

Get yourself a rather large pot and fill it with garden soil added with organic fertilizer such as chopped egg shells, for example. Make sure the soil is sufficiently moist and well drained because peppers cannot stand stagnant water.

Now you will have to start spreading your pepper seeds in the soil you have put inside the pot and water them once a day: after 3 days you will only begin to notice small and green shoots.

Remember to place the pot containing the seeds of peppers in a cool, bright but not too much, where the sun’s rays do not come to hit the sprouts directly.

What happens after only 7 days is even more incredible: the seedlings will have developed roots by now and are ready to grow again. So move the pot to a warm and bright place, remembering to water the soil at least once a day, every day.

After 15 days from the first planting, you can add an organic or organic fertilizer to help the plants grow faster. If you want large, healthy peppers with a shiny natural coloring, you will always need to keep the plant in a sunny place and water it daily.

If, on the contrary, there is no sunlight, the plant will grow tall but weak and break easily, blocking the production of peppers. Pepper is a plant that needs a lot of nutrients, so do not forget to fertilize it at least once every 15 days.

After 25 days, the seedlings will already be large enough to be pruned and planted in separate pots. Take as many pots (smaller in size) as there are seedlings to be buried. Fill them with moist and fertilized soil, make furrows and bury your plants. Always water regularly at least once a day. After a month, you will start to see the first colorful peppers on your plants!
