My adjuma plants

Sun, 06/14/2015 - 14:31

After successfully growing my own basil I decided to go one step further and try to grow my own adjuma pepper plants. Adjuma's are extremely hot chilli's from Surinam. They look like the Habanero pepper and are closely related to the Madame Jeanette pepper, also from Surinam. One day, when preparing a curry, I sliced one adjuma pepper and put about 15 seeds into soil. I put the jar with soil in my window sill and after one month two small sprouts started to appear. They were very small and looked very fragile, so I carefully gave them water about once every day. Not too much. Just enough to keep the soil moist.

Now, 3-4 months later, the little sprouts grew to become two very large plants. Although, they're doing great, I haven't yet seen any signs of peppers. I really hope one day the peppers start growing and I can eat my curry with home-grown Surinam adjuma peppers.

So far, I've been taking care of these plants as I think is OK, but I'm not (yet) an expert on plant life. So if anyone has great tips on how to grow plants, making them grow faster and stronger, please let me know.
