Pasilla Bajio Peppers in Containers?

LizzaNVAApril 24, 2012

Hi all,

I'm trying to grow Pasilla Bajio peppers in containers this year. I saved the seeds from peppers I grew in the garden last summer. Any advice?

Use the 5-1-1, pine/fir bark fines, perlite and garden soil mix for your containers. Containers should be at least three gallon up to 7 gallon. The bigger the better.
Check out the "container Gardening" forum also.

I am growing this pepper for the first time this year. Though, I am going to have mine in the garden rather than a container. I was worried that this may be a pretty big plant, that's why I opted for garden space.

In a container, as mentioned - the bigger the better (to a point).

I would also be prepared to support it somehow should the need arise. When I have grown Poblanos in pots, I have used the cheap tomato cages and neighboring pots to help keep the plant supported or the entire pot from blowing over. I guess I should also mention that I usually stake my larger pepper plants that are in the ground.

Grew them last year in pots. Nothing special about them, treated them the same as all the others. They do get big, so a large pot is recommended and you will probably have to support it as fruit grows.
