A very bright exposure is required, however avoiding full sun at midday, especially behind glazing. Also avoid drafts. If you have a garden or a balcony, don't hesitate to take your plant out, but don't forget to shelter it in winter!
The substrate must be kept cool throughout the growth period (May to September) but never soggy. During the dormancy period (October to March), water once a month.
During the SUMMER SOLSTICE period (April to September) - Add 1 table spoon (15ml) of 12-6-6+OLIGO one time/per month & Add alga liquid fertilizer (5ml concentrate in 1L of water) every 2 weeks .

For the pepper tree, we rather talk about pinching the new shoots in order to maintain a compact habit that is more conducive for potted tree. Pinching are made in late spring to august. Before dormant period (October to March), u need to cut all branches above the third node !
The pepper tree is a tropical plant that cannot stand frost. It appreciates temperatures between 20 and 25°C all year round. Don't forget to bring it inside! Never expose it to temperatures below 10°C, it would lose its leaves.
The pepper tree is NO-TOXIC with our furry friends ;) (keep in mind some pepper fruits are volcano hot !)
