My lanky chilli plant.
I bought a pot with chilli seeds from the garden centre. I don't know what variety. It was one of these packages that comes with everything, compost, seeds and the pot.
The picture on the box showed a small chilli bush with lots of branches. Instead mine is shooting straight up. The coffee jar and blender in the photo give you a sense of scale
Is this right? Do I need to do anything to care for it. I know nothing about chilli plants (or any plants tbh).
Thanks for any advice.
That does not look like a chilli plant.
I think the label has been put in the wrong plant.
I agree, doesn't look like a Chilli plant to me either. But no idea what it really is : /
Oh dear! So maybe my chilli seeds never germinated. I did put about 30 of them in the soil and this was the only thing that germinated.
So I have been carefully tending a triffid all this time?
Does anyone recognise what it is? Should I just bin it?
