Plant from sibling as early as possible in large flower pot. When the temperature is nice set the plant outside. Bring it in before evening. A week after blossoms appear, sprinkle with a little fertilizer (do not sprinkle close to the stem) and give a lot of water.

My father planted the seeds from over ripe peppers. It's been here for years and I never knew it was famous and rare until someone came to ask for these chillis. They call it the "siling demonyo" in my local dialect, where "sili" means chilli and "demonyo" means demon - pertaining to its level of hotness.
This guide is about growing chives. Chives are simple to grow and come back year after year.

Watching this Garden Grow
A John Denver Song comes to mind when I see how my garden has grown.
Measuring a 5 Gallon Bucket of String Beans
This morning, I picked a 5 gallon bucket full of string beans. I was wondering how many packages I would get to freeze. After blanching, it measured to be 28 cups of cut string beans, which would be 7 quarts.
Using Tough Overgrown Green Beans
If you have left any green beans too long on the plant, they will be too tough to eat. However, they need not go to waste. You can remove the beans from the pods and boil and eat them on their own. You can save a few to grow next year.
Regrow Vegetables on Your Windowsill
Make your vegetables go further by re-growing them. The trimmings of certain vegetables will grow again if you put them in a pot of compost, place them on your windowsill and keep them watered. The photo shows celery leaves grown from the base of a bunch of celery.
Growing Green Onions from Leftover Scraps
Don't toss your green onion scraps away, you can easily grow more! Soak your scraps in water. Once you see your green onion growing a little, transfer into a mason jar allowing the green onions to grow straight up, make sure the roots are in downward position.
Corn Reproduction Trivia
Did you know, for every potential kernel of corn, there is a corn silk? A grain of pollen from the tassel must fall on each silk and travel down the silk tube to the corn ovule (where fertilization occurs) in order for there to be a fully developed ear of corn.
Indoor Roma Tomatoes Not Flowering
I started a project at work growing Roma tomatoes from seeds. I transferred them into buckets (sand buckets like for the beach) they are now really tall, but not flowering. They face south so they have direct sun for 7 hours a day. I planted the seeds in April. Am I doing something wrong?
Patio Tomato Not Blooming
I bought a patio tomato plant for a large container on my porch. It had 1 small tomato on it when I got it, but has never had any other blossoms nor has it gotten much bigger. Otherwise the plant is healthy, no bugs, and I am not overfeeding it. I have grown tomatoes for years and never had this problem.
Tomato Plants Don't Have a Lot of Flowers
My tomato plants are not flowering much. What am I doing wrong? I usually have no problem. I planted Big Boy using Osmocote and water as needed plenty of sun.
Haworthia Bloom Failing
I've had my haworthia for I think two maybe three years now and this year it decided it would bloom for the first time.
Summer Squash Not Growing Large
This summer my zucchini and yellow crookneck squash plants are thriving and producing tons of tiny fruit, but the fruit is not growing and developing like it should. The fruit gets to 4-6" long and seems to quit growing. I fertilize regularly and water daily.
Tomato Plants Not Setting Fruit
There are small, fuzzy flowers that have developed all over my large tomato plant, but they are not turning into fruit. In all my years of tomato growing I have never seen this before!
