Thank you to all who came to our Brooklyn & Catskills pepper plant giveaways! If you took home a chili plant to love and nourish, we wanted to share some quick tips for caring for your new plant:
PEPPER PLANT CARE 101
Sunlight: Chili plants like full sun!
Water: Try not to overwater, but don’t let soil dry out completely.
Soil: Well-draining, evenly moist soil is best.
Transplanting: Move them to a bigger pot or put them in the ground so they have room to grow!
Ideal temp: 70-80*F - summer outdoors is perfect.
Did you know pepper plants are self-pollinating?
We’re stoked to see this distributed agriculture project come to life and to be able to connect more with our Brooklyn & Catskills communities. We’ll be sending a save the date for our September pepper harvest event soon. Stay tuned and happy gardening!
