  • If multiple seeds germinate per pod, leave up to two seedlings to grow per pod. This ensures there is enough space and nutrients for the plants to grow.
  • Once your plant is flowering it needs to be pollinated by hand. You can do this by gently shaking your plant to carry pollen from one blossom to the next.
  • If your plant has given you the first harvest, just trim old leaves and fruit stems from the bottom of the stem. New green leaves and flowers will emerge soon.
