Ornamental Pepper may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Ornamental Pepper in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Ornamental Pepper after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
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!
