Conservatory pepper growing
I get mixed answers from googling this subject. I have several pepper plants (habenero) growing in my conservatory. It gets ample sunlight through the windows in the morning hours, but for the most part the sunlight is filtered through the ceiling. The ceiling is a plastic polycarbonate, but it maintains high brightness and it can get very hot in there. There is heating inside for cold spells.
Is this an ideal environment? Some say it is perfect for peppers. Others say more direct sunlight is needed.
So what's the straight dope? The peppers are so far growing steadily, even though we have had a rather damp and cool May. Nonetheless, I have noticed many buds starting to dangle all over the place. Even though I have these dangles, I am still skeptical about this environment.
We are supposed to be getting warmer temperatures in the next week, so I guess that will be the real test.
Anyone else grow peppers like this?
