Bit of a long shot but has anyone on here grown chilli's at home. I've just taken delivery of 3 super hot ones and 3 normal but any tips with them would be helpful. (The last time I tried to grow ghost chilli's, nowt happened.

I've grown them a couple of times mate. The main thing is to ensure that you don't over water them and that they are keep relatively warm (indoors or a greenhouse). Once you get a sprout ensure that they get plenty of sun by putting them in a window sill.

Always keep mine by a south facing window.

Only issue I've had is whitefly.

You had obesity issues and have ongoing personality issues as well, Toppy.

Water sparingly, feed frequently (tomato food works well) and they can't get enough sun.
Expect most of them to ripen lateish in the U.K. although some are a bit earlier.

Cheers Navy, 3 are doing fine (although no fruiting yet) 3, the cats eat all the fricking leaves although they don't seem to have died. And the last I planted from seed and have started sprouting. Am well chuffed ha ha (it's the little things)

They're currently all in 10cm square pots, do i need to move them to bigger pots at any point or will they be alright (yes i'm pants at this but i'm trying to learn.)

2 are now doing fine, 4 have just got stems left (not the cat, the leaves fell off) but the ones I seeded myself are all growing good in a little pot.

Anyhoo, just a bit of info but World of Chilli's is having a sale with 1/3 off all plug plants, they've got ghost chilli's and all sorts so thought some of you might be interested.

Sorry to drag this up again but I know some of you have grown these, a couple of my chilli plants have a load of white flies on them, does anyone know what they are? how I can get rid of them? and how to prevent them coming back?Anyone grown Chilli's before Tumblr_ntak7gQzjz1udu134o2_540

Fair point Shah

Though don't get confused with lava, that would have dire consequences.

Get it from a online gardeners store. make sure you dont buy em over ebay as they might have their own parasites.

Eeek, whiteflies! Also a big issue with chillis, once I had them they always came back. I used an organic spray to kill them off as I grew mine as a house plant.

Just need to thoroughly wash anything your harvest.

Where did you get your organic spray from? and if you made it whats the recipe. I got a recipe for one (detergent, garlic, chilli powder, water) and it seems to attract the little gits.

Cheers for all your help fellas it's much appreciated

Garden centre.....?

Will have to check the name/brand this evening. Pretty sure it was organic, but I may be wrong......
