How to Grow Hotter Peppers

For the hottest peppers, situate the plants in all day sun. The more sun and heat a hot pepper plant is exposed to, the more capsaicin the fruit will contain. Chili fruit also becomes hotter as it ripens so resist picking the pods until they color fully.

Following these tips will only allow a chili to become as hot as it is genetically capable of becoming. If your fully ripe peppers are still not as hot as you'd like, try planting a hotter variety like ghost or habenero peppers--two of the hottest peppers in the world.

Use a good quality potting mix when growing peppers indoors. If you use garden soil, you risk exposing the peppers to diseases.

Place the plants in the brightest light you can give them. A pepper plant will perform poorly unless it gets lots of light.

Air circulation is also important, so open a window or keep a fan on low near the plant for a few hours each day.

When choosing a pepper plant houseplant, be mindful of the mature size of the variety you choose. Ornamental pepper plants make particularly suitable houseplants.
