Here are some tips on how to care for your Ghost Chili plant:
Choose the right location: Purple UFO Chili plants need plenty of sunshine and warmth to grow properly. Choose a spot in your garden or balcony that gets at least 6-8 hours of sunlight per day. The temperature should be warm, ideally between 25-35°C (77-95°F).
Use the right soil: Purple UFO Chili plants need well-draining soil that's rich in organic matter. A good potting mix with added perlite or vermiculite works well. If planting in the ground, add some compost or aged manure to enrich the soil.
Water properly: Purple UFO Chili plants need regular watering, but be careful not to overwater them as this can lead to root rot. Water the plant deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Don't let the soil dry out completely.
Fertilise regularly: Purple UFO Chili plants are heavy feeders and need regular fertilization. Use a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring to autumn). You can also add some compost or aged manure to the soil.
Prune as needed: Purple UFO Chili plants can get bushy, so it's a good idea to prune them occasionally to keep them in shape. You can also prune off any dead or diseased branches.
Watch out for pests and diseases: Purple UFO Chili plants are susceptible to pests like aphids, mites, and whiteflies, as well as diseases like powdery mildew and bacterial spot. Check your plant regularly and treat any issues promptly.
