Self-Watering Pepper Planter

Turn your windowsill into a fresh produce counter with this self-watering pepper grow kit.

Forecast: Chili Tomorrow

Turn your windowsill into a fresh produce counter with this chili pepper grow kit that includes everything you need to enjoy the fiery fruits of your minimal labor. The secret to fool-proof cultivation is the olla ("oy-yah"), a four thousand-year-old piece of agricultural technology. It's a small, unglazed ceramic jar that automatically releases the right amount of moisture into the soil when you fill it with water once a week. The kit also includes all the supplies you need—fast-germinating seeds, growing jar, organic soil, and organic fertilizer spikes—to cultivate your own peppers, green thumbs or not. All you need is a little patience and a taste for fresh peppers in your chili, tacos, or salsa picante. Seeds typically germinate in 1-2 weeks. Made in Utah.

UG's resident Data Scientist, Dr. Ken, put this self-sufficient planter to the test. But did his wee houseplant bear fruit after all? Find out on the blog.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Self-Watering Pepper Planter:

      My mom absolutely loves this! I bought her the tomato plant at Christmas, which I could tell she loved right away. So, when she was having a rough week and I wanted to send her a little pick me up, I knew this would be perfect!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was very smooth. I ordered two day shipping, and it got there on time.
