Thai Hot Birds Eye Chili Seeds
Info: The Thai Hot Birds Eye Chili is a growth from the US. The plants grow bushy and compact (80 cm height) and are well suited for cultivation in pot - the beautiful plants thrive well on window sills, terraces and balconies. The plants bear masses of small, upright and bright red chillies. They are about 1 x 5 cm long and thin-walled, fiery hot and aromatic. They have many uses in the kitchen, whether for cooking (not only for Asian dishes), drying or pickling.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be placed in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plants inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
