How to grow paprika from seed right from your own kitchen

I love paprikas, also known as, bell peppers, thanks to their endless benefits. First off, they are yummy, healthy and colorful. Secondly, they are great for garnishing as well. Naturally, paprikas have lots of skin, hair, health and other benefits that your body can benefit from. And most of all, I love them because they are very easy to grow from seed.

Believe me when I say that you don’t have to be an experienced gardener to be able to grow paprika from seed. And of course, you could buy some “ready-to-grow” paprikas seeds but you could just buy some fresh paprikas, eat the paprikas, and use their seeds to grow.

Please note that you don’t have to have a proper garden, but you do have to put the pot somewhere in the house where there is enough sunlight. A small balcony like mine would do just fine. Direct sunlight is the key when it comes to growing paprika, or any other plant for that matter, from seed.

Yes, you are finished. So, just sit back, relax and wait until they grow. Growing they will and starting the 3rd day, you should see some tiny leaves that start to emerge from the surface of the potting soil.
