The Thai Ornamental Hot pepper grows at an astonishing rate! Proper care plays a role because this plant loves direct sunlight for 6+ hours a day. Watering should be once a week with an occasional spray of water when the plant looks dry.

Super fast grower, blooms fast & easy to maintain. Practically grows on its own!
