Ornamental Pepper Plant Assorted
Ornamental Pepper Plant 'Capsicum annuum'
Striking when in full fruit, ornamental pepper (Capsicum annuum) is a shrubby little plant with a tropical appeal.
Ornamental pepper plants need a location with full sun.
The plants become leggy and produce few peppers if they receive fewer than eight hours of sunlight each day.
Their soil should be rich and drain well.
Water the plants often enough to keep their soil evenly moist.
Applying water slowly allows soil to absorb the moisture without letting it run off.
Peppers don't like too much water, so allow their soil to dry slightly before watering again.
Fertilize with a slow-release fertilizer early in the growing season.
Ornamental pepper plants are susceptible to leaf spot and wilt diseases, especially when grown in wet soil and in areas with poor air circulation.
Aphids and spider mites may become a problem.
Spray the plants with insecticidal soap or neem oil spray according to the product's label instructions to control those insects.
