This is one of our favorite peppers to be grown in containers. The fun, bushy ornamental Firecracker Chili plant grows to 2 feet tall that produces 1-inch pods. The Firecracker Chili peppers grow upright from creamy white to green, to yellow, to orange, then a stunning deep red when mature. All the colors may compete for attention on the same plant though, so make sure to observe their beauty during their growth!

Unashamedly bright and vibrant, the Firecracker Chili pepper is an ornamental little pepper that secretly packs a punch that you will not see coming. Coming in hot with a heat level of 45,000 SHUs, you will notice upfront burn before tasting delicious fruity flavors.

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
