I finally had some time to plant during the Holy Week break and I'm happy to see some of the seeds sprout over the last few days.
I got the "Cleopatra Hot Pepper" seeds from SM Hypermarket while shopping for vegetables. I decided to get it because I remember my Mama Lola had a sili plant and it bore a lot of fruit. I don't really like spicy food, but some of the dishes I cook require a sili or two in it.
I planted a couple of seeds in different locations at home - the backyard and the garden (in a shaded area and in an area that gets a lot of sun). The first to sprout were the seeds planted exposed to the morning sun. I water it every morning and just check whether it needs to be watered in the afternoon (following the Tagaytay gardener who said that I should water my plants when the soil is dry). And so far so good. Here's my days old sili plant:
