How Often Do Chillies Need Watering?

It is best to make sure you keep the soil in your plant pot moist, though not waterlogged, as this can prevent germination.

One of the best ways to do this is with a sprayer or mister as it causes less disturbance to the seeds and the soil temperature

One of the most asked questions we get it is how often to feed chilli plants and what to feed them with?

In the early stages of growth, while the weather is fairly mild we tend to give them some tap water every 2 to 3 day or whenever the soil is looking dry on top. As the summer temperatures increase you can increase this to once a day.

Make sure you water your chilli plant consistently and deeply. Plants should be fed about 1 – 2 times per week at the same time as watering and you can use chilli focus or any standard tomato plant food..

Your chilli plant will be fine as long as you give your plant good drainage and try to keep the soil from getting soggy.
