Question Growing peppers through winter indoors?

Hello all,

I just had an idea of growing some peppers, hot & sweet, under a fluorescent light through winter so they could get a good head start....... does anyone do this?

I know some will survive my winter outdoors but they usually die off a lot and there isn't much difference between ones that survive over winter and new ones i plant.

Please share your opinions.

hey rubber... I don't grow under lights, but I do bring in my peppers in pots n overwinter them in my greenhouse room... I cut em back, n by mid june we r getting peppers, while everyone else in 6+ weeks behind...
we do start new pepper seeds under fluor's n once they sprout which sometimes is weeks, they do really well, but for flowering I would think u need a lot more light then they will put out..

I only want to 'veg' them under fluoros over winter so they have a strong base to boost from once it starts to get warmer.

that should work, as my pepper seeds I start under fluor's, grow very well, so I would think it will maintain em during the winter tooo

I have some Caribbean Reds starts growing under flouros. They seem to be thriving. I started them as a germ test and am just letting them go, need to transplant tho. The problem I’m going to have is space, can’t really put them out till May. Might have to do some pruning and/or put them in a window sill down the road.

If you bring plants in to overwinter make sure you look out for and treat for pests. Peppers don’t get a lot but I had some years ago that got infested with aphids big time (no natural predators).

I have kept a couple alive in the window with minimal attention and just random watering then they reveg quick once you put them back out in the spring and are hearty producers.

buildasoil had some videos on instagram of them growing peppers in a 4x4 tent (and all other things) under just one of those big 150w cfl.. never tried it myself, but apparently they arent too light intensive
