Soil for chili peppers:

When we deal with seeding, the main thing to take into account is the choice of soil that has a fundamental role for the success of our work: it must have all the nutrients that the plant needs to grow strong and vigorous. Depending on where we live, if in the north or south of Italy, the periods for sowing vary depending on the temperature: in the south you can start planting the first seeds around the middle of March ( temp. 5/10 degrees), while in the north we can in April.

If we want instead to have already some plants in March April, then it is recommended the indoor chili.

With the help of artificial lights you can get the fruits obviously in a controlled environment.
