As I wrote you a few weeks back here, I start growing chilies. I took some photos to see how my chilies are doing. As you can see, I have a few and more to come. Some of them started to get red, so I think I am on my right way.
The Bishop’s hat is huge. It grew so much that it scared me. I already have 9 chilies waiting to get red.
The Bird Eye Demon is full of chilies. I counted around 50 and they are turning red.
Habanero White has 6 and I am waiting to turn white.
Habanero Peach has only 1 chili and a few flowers. The tree was full of flowers, but we had a wave of cold and killed almost all the flowers.
Carolina Reaper is getting flowers and I can’t wait to see the chilies and try them. These are the seeds I planted them so I am very excited. So far was a great learning experience.
I can’t wait to eat them.

Beautiful! Do you utilize grow lights to help your chili plants grow, or just sunlight?? I’ve found any pepper plants I’ve tried to grow indoors only thrive if I have grow lights on them (although I’ve never tried growing chilies).
Only sunlight. But I am thinking about grow lights over the winter
Your pepper plants look very happy and healthy in that warm sunny space. I love the view out your window too…all the different textures to see.
I’ve never seen the bishops hat before. What a beautiful chili!
Ever tried bhut jalokia?
It will be interesting for you to experience the various degrees of hotness among the chilis.
Laura Kate, do you like hot sauces, spicy foods, et cetera?
Just a little bit hot. No Carolina reapers are on my menus.
Laura Kate, I do invite you to follow my blog and leave any comments if you are interested.
Impressive! You do have quite a jungle going there.
I love your photography. Beautiful!
I love your jungle! So beautiful! I’ve thought about growing chilis. How do I get started? You prefer to use seeds?
I started with seeds and I got seedlings from my brother in law.
Thank you! I found your other post with tips and tricks. I appreciate the info. Saved for later 🙂
You are welcome
Wow, they are beautiful! I have been unsuccessfully trying to grow peppers. Seems the tomato worms love pepper plants…
I can’t wait to see what you make from all these chilies!
Magnificent! Clearly, you’re skilled in both horticulture and photography.
Are all the varieties you’re growing chilies you’ve eaten before, or will some of them be a new experience?
Some will be a new experience
Indoor chili garden! Who knew? You inspire me!
That IS a jungle. I like how it’s attractive, as well as growing things that are good to eat.
Very nice.I noticed you have kept them indoors , is that the best way to grow them ? Also did you use seeds or a graft to start with ?
Seeds and seedlings. We don’t have good weather to grow outside
Will surely try to grow one to start with. Just got a sapling of a lemon tree last week. Still waiting for it to flower.
They all look great!
🙂 It never occurred to me to grow peppers indoors. I’ve tried several times to grow them outdoors and it’s too rainy and cool too much of the time. I’ll have to try this!!
what a great sunny window/corner! I love all the green plants growing there.
I love this idea and seeing your pictures, especially since I don’t currently have an outdoor space for growing things.
It is very satisfying to grow your own chillies. After you harvest them, there is so much you can do with them. I dry some out and then make some chilli flakes. I use some others while they are fresh to make a sweet chilli jam, to go into Thai red curries. Have fun with yours!
Nice! I dry them and make flakes and use them in my chili jam.
Amazing. Are they a one-year plant?
I plant them in January this year
They look amazing. Both of my parents grow chilies. This year our chili plant survived and we managed to use many in our foods.
I love growing chilies! I usually at least have jalapenos and serranos in the garden 🙂
Ooh lovely! Are you going to be able to eat them all?
They look so healthy! I’m about to get my garden back up and running.
Beautiful blog! Thank you for visiting and liking my blog. Do visit again soon. God bless!
Nice 👍. Pls follow back.
Thank you for liking my most recent post! Your site is do beautiful. I love the interweaving of photography and text
Did not have good luck growing chilies, can grow everything else but, I think I might try again!
Thank you! I’m gonna need it.
Those plants look very healthy! Do you feed them with any type of plant food? I am having trouble with some of my indoor plants regarding mites.
No. Water and sun
I’m sooo in love with hot peppers!🤤 #ThatJamaicanTongue
Such a nice work and healthy plant 👍🏻😁
