Things You'll Need
Medium Flower pots
Thai Hot pepper seed
Buy your supplies at your local hardware store. The Thai Hot Pepper seeds come in paper packets. Purchase 2 or 3 wide pots. They can be decorative to attract the eye to your plants. A medium to large bag of potting soil is good to buy. If there is any left you can use it for other great planting projects. Plant fertilizer comes in a plastic bottle or a box.
Get the pots ready putting the potting soil almost to the top of pot. Leave a 3 to 4 inch space. Poke holes with a finger about 1/4 inch deep. Sprinkle seeds in the holes. Cover gently with the soil. Water good and put the pots in the sunlight.
Prepare the fertilizer by the directions on the label. Usually it is diluted with water. Lightly sprinkle on some of the fertilizer around the seeds. Water the seeds every other day. I would say fertilize once a week.
Soon you will see little spouts come out. They may need to be thinned out. Transplant some of the Thai Hot Pepper plants into other pots. They should be watered and fertilized carefully. They will grow lots of little Thai Hot Peppers.
Pick the peppers when they are ready and use in your favorite Asian recipes. They can be stored in a plastic bag in the freezer if you produce a lot of them. Or give some to friends. Have fun growing Thai Hot Peppers!
