INSTRUCTIONS - I am reducing paper waste by no longer sending paper instructions to customers. All the information required is detailed below so bookmark this page.


Germination Guide
  • Soak the seeds in a cup warm water for 24 hours. Keep the cup in a warm pace  eg on a radiator or in airing cupboard etc.
  • Wash in clean water
  • Prepare a rich compost mix - Ideally a mix of  75% regular compost, 25% vermiculite (which I sell in the Accessories section of my eBay shop)
  • Add some slow release general fertiliser balls as this is a hungry plant
  • Place compost mix in seed try or individual pots
  • Ensure compost mix is moist but not soaking
  • Sow seeds individually 1/4 inch below the surface
  • Loosely cover with clear bag
  • Keep warm in a warm place 21-30c out of direct sunlight - so heated propagator/mat is ideal for this seed.
  • Germination will take place in 25-40 days
TOP TIP! Don't use all your seeds in the same pot just in case rot sets in. 


Plant Care
  • Plants prefer slightly acidic soil and can tolerate PH level up-to 5.0 or 6.5.
  • Ideally 5-6 hours of filtered sunlight or partial shade - West facing window best for UK homes 
  • As it is a vine, it will require a trellis, moss pole etc
  • Watering is very important. Keep the soil moist all the time, but not soggy. Don’t let the soil to dry out ever. 
  • In summer or when the plant is setting fruits, increase watering.
  • Black pepper plant loves humidity, the more the better. For this, mist the plant often with soft water. 
  • Place pots on on a saucer filled with water, this will also increase the humidity level.
  • Avoid proximity to radiators!
