How to grow chili indoor (inside the house)


There are several reasons to prefer the cultivation inside rather than in the open air, for example it is much simpler and safer if you live in cold climatic areas where in winter it is impossible to cultivate something outside. 

Indoor cultivation is your solution to keep your plants growing and protect them from the weather. For this you need to heat the environment in order to reach at least twenty degrees and seeds to be planted, for this obviously we suggest you to buy them by clicking here: chili seeds.


How to germinate seeds  

After moaning your seeds you have to place them on shelves and expose them to light. Not having the sun at your disposal, you have to organize with artificial lights (Led, neon) that are essential to grow the plant. 

This method will allow you to grow your plants until outside there is enough sun and heat to move the plants outside.

Useful tips for indoor lighting

The trick to make the plants grow well in the house is to expose them to the right light and for the appropriate time period. 

The costs are not high, you can build a LED or neon system with an economic budget. In fact you can use a closet or a closed space of any type and set it up with the lights you prefer (of course those suitable for the plant of chili). 

There are different types of lights:


The 6400K shade is the degree of light you need to cultivate. With this lighting you will recreate the temperature of sunlight during the day, which usually exceeds 5000K. This gradation is the perfect reproduction of the daily light.

Classic fluorescent lamps

They are very common lights that you can easily find in many DIY shops. They are preferable if we grow the plant in narrow spaces (the proportion is 1/2 lights of 20/50 watts for 1 m2).

Circular lamp

If you have larger spaces you can use this type of lights, which manages to illuminate about two hundred plants in 2 square meters.

Neon tube

The neon system is more complex, it consists of tubes, a reactor and a starter (which you find in electronics stores). We are still on a relatively low budget, but we advise you to consult a plant expert so that he can advise you how to use the various tools.
