Over wintered Ecuadorian Devil's Breath - lost of flowers but no chillies

Post by Obelix27 » Fri May 24, 2019 9:42 am

My Ecuadorian Devil's breath has been inside in a very sunny south facing window in London. It survived winter and is producing a lot of flowers. But none of these are turning to chillies. I am trying to pollinate them via q-tips/shaking. Is it just too early or am I being overly hopeful optimistic that it will produce any chillies. I didn't prune it or anything for the winter, and have been feeding it for the last month or two.

It should produce just fine. Chillies are very picky about environmental factors, like temperature swings between day and night, humidity, hours of light etc.

Give it time and it will be fine.
