Do chilli plants need lots of water? Q: How often should I water my plants? A: Chilli plants enjoy a good watering followed by a period without water – until the compost is almost dry. Select a compost with good drainage to help keep air in the soil and try to avoid the pot standing inwater.

How can I make my peppers grow faster? Make sure to start your seeds early, keep them warm, and use season extenders or indoor lights to help them grow faster until the warm weather comes to stay. Make sure to grow them in full sun, too, as peppers need lots of sun to grow big andstrong.

How do you dry chillies in the sun? Place the peppers cut-side down onto a cookie sheet, and place them in direct sunlight. While outside is best, you can also put them in a windowsill if necessary. Dry the peppers in the sun for aminimum of 8 hours. Turn the peppers over, so the cut-side is facing the sun, and allow them to continue drying.
