pepper pots (Pimientos)


i have so many seedlings i have a few friends who want some, but i have no small pots to get the plants going a bit more before i transport them. i only had some wax paper, but this turned out to be easier to do than i thought it would. just turn the pot on its side when filling it up. hopefully it will keep the roots from intertwining.

these will be Pimiento Peppers. i will start 8 plants myself and hope to get a good harvest starting in a month or two. i've never tried growing from seeds before. last year the plants kept producing peppers through November (San Diego garden).

Re: pepper pots (Pimientos)


as an update... that wax paper separation did not work, but Home Depot came through with some fiber pots on the shelf. these should get the seedlings growing for a few weeks. still don't know what i'm going to do with 30+ plants.

Re: pepper pots (Pimientos)


You can make a 'pot' from rolled newspaper strips that will last long enough to establish seedlings. I always held them together with staples.

Re: pepper pots (Pimientos)


Weve used plastic egg cartons and also chinese tupperware (the take out
soup containers) right now were raising tadpoles in chinese tupperware
and two other big glass pots, as well...Dont ask me why were doing this cause I donno!
Im sitting out here looking at the hundreds of tadpoles when I read your post.

They also make these containers in a one cup size - pictured is the two
cup size.

I think they would make a nice looking temporary hedge row. I'm not joking, i'm serious and they'll need full sun if possible an you probably know that.


I like Cow Pots for starting seeds if i can find them.



It's still fun to see others vegetable garden starts even if grass hoppers are devouring mine.

Re: pepper pots (Pimientos)


some good ideas, but these pots weren't at all expensive. the small ones were 15/ $3 and the larger ones were about twice as much, so overall i spent less than $15. they seem like a rigid type of burlap material and what is nice is that most of them are in spare saucers i had and filling them up in the morning, the pots suck up the moisture so the seedlings don't need to get disturbed with direct watering.
