What are the pros? Tolerates Alot, Beautiful
What are the cons? Slow Start, Etiolates Easy
I got some seeds from a friend about a year ago and only got around to planting them this year. Admittedly, I kind of jumped the gun, sowing them indoors in March. Of the 10 or so seeds I only got 3 sprouts. They started off pretty weak and became etiolated in the window light.
However, when they got moved to the sunroom when the weather warmed up they began to take off.
They transplanted without any problems and are now about 2ft tall and flowering.
We didn't eat them, but they are very attractive plants. We keep them in a small 4 gallon pot by the deck to admire. If they reseed themselves, we might actually get around to eating them next year.
They don't mind the small space, the heat (we're getting up to the 80s so far), the chilly nights (dropping to about 45 Fahrenheit), didn't miss a beat when put outdoors (unlike my crybaby tomatoes), no pests, and haven't needed a drop of food other than what was in the pot mix.
