Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the ground, e.g. with Hay or straw, which can reduce evaporation by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal moist microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of the plants, but also reduces water consumption enormously.

It is also recommended to always keep the beds moist , even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The drying out of the soil leads to a huge decline in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, which over time leads to an infertile soil . Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed remains longer when the entire bed is watered over a longer period of time than when it is only watered selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out more quickly than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

If the beds are not in use, we recommend sowing with green manure.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach it again and again.

The chili 'De Cayenne' is a perennial fruit vegetable plant and is the best known hot chili. This variety is originally from the capital of French Guiana and is mainly ground into a fine chili powder, the so-called cayenne pepper. The plants grow bushy and compact, producing narrow, 15 cm long, thin-walled fruit. The cayenne pepper is characterized by its snappy spiciness and a slightly smoky-spicy flavor that gives a special touch to many dishes. Any fruit stage, whether green or red, can be consumed raw or cooked. Unlike other varieties of chilli, the variety is very easy to grow.

Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to May.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to April. The seedlings are planted in the bed in mid-May after the ice saints.

We always recommend the pre-culture, for this purpose let the seedlings grow in a small bowl up to the first chilli leaves, then pik into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at warm temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings.
Chili prefers a fully sunny and warm location with sufficient water and nutrient-rich, humus-rich soil. Prepare the soil with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Chili needs an airy 24 to 30 ° C to thrive. Chilli plants are generally cultivated with 2 or 4 shoots. We recommend a framework for tying the chilli shoots. In order to stimulate the root growth and thus the plant growth of the plants, put the seedlings deeper into the soil, up to the leaf axis of the cotyledons. Sufficient and uniform irrigation has a positive effect on the quality of the fruit. At temperatures below 15 °C, the plant reduces its growth. A regular harvest promotes yield. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds. Propagation via cuttings is possible.

Care Plants
The bed in the chilli should never dry out completely, regular watering is necessary to keep the growth of the plants stable. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.
