Chilli Filius Blue Plant
A medium to hot chilli that is just as good as an ornamental plant as it is a fruiting chilli. This is a very productive variety that can produce hundreds of fruit over the season. The fruit will emerge a very light purple which will later go to yellow, orange and then red.
Small almost ball shaped fruit that will be no more than 2cm long and 1cm wide,
Can be used in salads or cooking. Or simply grow it as an ornamental plant.
Ideal for container or pot?
Fantastic in a small space such as the windowsill or a light room. Can be grown outside in the summer too
Is this plant "garden ready"?
As with all Chilli plants they love the heat. This is especially true when they are young. All Chilli starter plants should be grown on the windowsill or a greenhouse until they are established and the weather is warm.
What compost should I use?
A good quality multipurpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
What is a plug plant/starter plant?
A plug plant is a small starter plant that is perfect to pot up into a larger plant. We grow and sell so many of these because they allow us to do it for such a good price.
Will I get the plants in the picture?
Yes, In the main picture. As this plant is a starter plant it will not be fruiting but will grow to be the same as the picture. The plug (starter) plant picture is used to give you an idea of the size and may not be exactly the same plant.
