Two months after sowing bell pepper seeds in a 7-pod AeroGarden unit, I’ve got the lamp raised to a height of about 18″ over very sturdy pepper plants that don’t need support (yet). The plants are growing straight up with heavy, woody stems and branches.
Since the seeds came from market-bought peppers I don’t know the growth habit of the plants: how tall they will grow, whether they will need to be pruned, staked or tied, or if they will produce peppers all season long, all year long, or all at once. What I do know, for sure, is that they are self-pollinating.
Who knew growing bell peppers indoors could be so much fun?
