Capsicum annuum is an attractive houseplant that showcases fantastic foliage and colourful peppers during the latter part of the year. Although the fruits are purely ornamental, they add a welcome burst of colour around the home during the dreary winter months when it is sorely needed. The plants begin to develop oval-shaped dark green leaves coupled with small white blooms during summer, these are followed by the pepper fruits towards the end of autumn which last roughly 6-8 weeks. The capsicum is commonly known as the “Christmas Pepper plant” due to the time of year it comes to the fore as well as it’s festive appearance.
This plant is relatively easy to care for, with only the basics of care required in order to keep it satisfied. Keep the soil moist, keep it in a place with plenty of light and ensure the temperature is kept cool to moderate.
