However, if you don’t fit in any of these two categories, it is still possible for you to grow hot chili peppers from seeds as well. A simple, plain approach will deliver results and deliver as per your expectations. The two main ingredients that you will need are seedling/ soil mix and trays/ containers for growing them.
Having good soil is very important and this will determine your success in growing hot chili peppers from seeds. Fortunately for you, most discount stores or nurseries have a wide range of some very good seed growing mixes that you should consider buying as they work incredibly well. Opting for them makes things much easier as you won’t have to worry about measuring or doing any mixing. But just in case you are interested in making your own mixture, you just need to use 1/3 of good garden soil and avoid using clay soil due to its bad compacting, 1/3 of vermiculite growing medium and finally, 1/3 of the mixture should be sand. Most varieties of hot chili peppers really love sand a lot and you will need to ensure that the growing soil contains sand as well. It is also of paramount importance that excellent drainage is provided as well and all the three ingredients need to be mixed together very well.
