List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Ornamental pepper is grown for its decorative fruits, especially during the Christmas season. Grow them in full sun and in any good potting soil. Avoid overwatering, the plants may be bushier if kept on the dry side. Light fertilization keeps the foliage from yellowing, but avoid over fertilization. The plants may be pinched as necessary to keep them bushy. Once the plants have fruited they can be discarded. The fruits should not be eaten because of hotness or possible pesticide applications. Cold temperatures cause yellowing and dropping of leaves.

Seeds planted in July give fruiting plants for Christmas.
