Welcome Anupam. Good show with the Okras. I believe you have a small garden in front of your house, thats where you're growing your plants, coz I can't imagine Banana in containers ūüôā

 

As for Seeds, Gurgaon Sadar is the best bet. Search for my previous posts and threads. I have given all the information there.

Also for Organic fertilizer I would recommend Dried Cow dung manure and Okhla Khaad. You can get them at Ahmed nursery, next to a wine shop at the beginning of Mehrauli Gurgaon Road (towards Delhi) on your left. This is right opposite Big Fish (shop for pet fish).

 

You can also give a try at those organic fertilizer bags you get for 40-50 bucks for 5 kg bag. I personally don't find them good enough. Above 2 are good enough.

I also want to grow green chilly plants.I would like to know the things that need to be taken care of while sowing them.Will the seeds that are taken from the dried chillies that we use at home for food will germinate?

thanks sheena..can you tell me the procedure for planting them...do we have to germinate the seeds,before planting them to soil,or can we directly sow the seeds.

 

how many days does it usually take for germination.

Sorry  Anupam

I never take much attention about the details. Whenever my chili plants yield become less i will sow some seeds in pots/ground and replant it when it is having some true leaves(say six). I think within one week seeds will germinate.

I will try to post a pic of seedlings I have now

Regards

Sheena

Are you watering it?. Try sowing some in the pots which is having plant so that you won't forget to water. I sowed in curry leaves plant, Brinjal and tomato. Some times from the compost I am putting for plants chili plants are coming.

yes their are a few online reliable stores i buy my seeds from KRAFT SEEDS you can google them quick and reliable seeds get delivered, i buy my fertilizer and potting soil and coco pellets from a shop in mumbai called green jardine 

Also on a free day venture out and explore Rajdhani Nursery they have a great collection of plants seeds and fertilizers and helpful staff.

 

The above people have been responsive and attentive so i recommend them.

 

Happy Growing

On a blog some where it was mentioned to sprinkle dried red chilly to have it insect free so i experimented after a week i have several chilly seedlings and now i have different chilly plants

 

Have Naga Jolokia, jalapeno, and a few other variety its easy to germinate from dried seeds then from the fresh ones hope this information helps, also do place pepper plants in full sun for faster growth.
