Growing Sweet Bell Peppers in Containers

Sacramento, CA(Zone 9b)

What are some tips/advice you can give a beginner grower?

I started my seeds indoor in March, and moved them into bigger containers early April. I want to assure they grow well & bear crop. What should be my next steps besides watering, waiting, and providing full sun?

I do plan to leave them in these containers. Two of the containers are 8-12 inches deep.

They look really tiny to have moved them in the bigger containers already. are they regular size bell peppers or a dwarf variety? containers may be too small for mature sized pepper plant

Did you accumulate them to the sun? if not they are going to fry

I did leave them outdoor in their original cup size & slowly harden them off. I gave in when my mother suggested I move them into bigger containers. I figure they're in containers and I can move them around so didn't worry much.

Sorry, forgot to answer your question. They are actually the Chinese Giants?

Choose an area with plenty of light and warmth, or set up grow lights and a heat mat under your seedling tray or mini-greenhouse. Choose 3 or larger coir or peat pots, or some other container which can be planted directly in the ground. Peppers can be transplanted from plastic pots, but they do not like having their roots disturbed, so plan to transplant carefully if you choose plastic.
