Peter Peps! Grow Log


I've never successfully grown peppers before. My attempts to grow mutants ended in failure. But this season, I'm trying again. I'll exclusively be trying my hands at a variety you guys have probably heard of, known as the Peter Pepper. It's a pepper variety known for being shaped like a private part. I'll be growing the red ones, which are the most phallic. I received the seeds from a shop in Belgium known as Badskin's Garden.

Using tricks learned from Khang Starr, I have used a plastic soda bottle and a plastic bag to contain a plant. I put three seeds in there and added water. I put the contraption in my windowsill.

I hope this works. Keep in mind this growlog will be updated semi-sporadically.
I moved the container to a sunnier windowsill. The Peter pepper sprout had a seed coat stuck on it, and I had to take it off. The Sprout looks quite weak. Is this lil' guy likely to live? 🥺
Too much water and no drain holes can create an environment that isn't good for peppers. I'd put drain holes and use a tray to catch the runoff.
Good advice!
If you let it dry out between watering, I'm sure it'll survive and thrive. I unintentionally manhandle my seedlings every now and then and I'm surprised how often they survive.
I'll do that, thank you both for the help!
