e Plants kept inside the house as roomplants during the winter.

This year we seeded inside the living room, in a plastic growbox, at the window. Unfortunately we removed the lid too soon and a large portion of the seedlings died of too much sun and heat.

Those that survived were transplanted on June 4th to large pots immediately. We skipped the mid-sized pots. Three pots are kept inside, the rest is kept outside in the usual place.

At the end of the season, three plants were brought inside the house and kept as roomplants. They were put in a place where they have full sun, whenever there is sun. During March 2OO3, the first flowers appeared on the plants, and during April, the first full grown peppers where there.


The average temperatures were : June ( 17.1/15.5 °C), July ( 18.8/17.1 °C), August ( /16.8 °C).
The average hours of sunshine were : June ( 200/202 ), July ( 188/195 ), August (/188 ).
(Before the slash is the value for this year, after the slash is the normal value).
