GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Bird's eye chili, bird eye chili, bird's chili, or Thai chili is a chili pepper, a variety from the species Capsicum annuum, commonly found in Ethiopia and across Southeast Asia.
  • It is often confused with a similar-looking chili derived from the species Capsicum frutescens, the cultivar "siling labuyo".
  • Capsicum frutescens fruits are generally smaller and characteristically point to the sky.
  • It is used extensively in Thai, Malaysian, Singaporean, Lao, Khmer, Indonesian, Kerala, and Vietnamese cuisines.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Plant your ornamental peppers in a rich, loamy soil.
  • Generous soil amendments of compost and manure will both improve tilth and add trace nutrients for healthier plants.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • It needs no special fertilizer. Just cow dung slurry every fortnight is more than enough for good production.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Ornamental peppers need full sun for the energy to produce flowers and colorful fruit.
  • If you grow these plants indoors, you should use supplemental artificial lighting for healthy plants and good fruiting.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • While ornamental peppers exhibit limited drought tolerance, they do not like to be waterlogged either.
  • Water whenever the soil's surface feels dry, and aim for a moisture level like that of a wrung-out sponge.
