Upside Down Pepper Plants: Discover Upside Down Pepper Culture

I’m pretty sure most of you have seen those bags of Topsy-Turvy green tomatoes. It’s a pretty ingenious idea, but what if you want to grow pepper plants upside down? It seems to me that an upside-down tomato is the same idea as an upside-down pepper plant. With the idea of growing peppers upside down, I did a little research on how to grow peppers upside down. Read on to find out if and how you can grow peppers upside down.

Can you grow peppers upside down?

Absolutely, it is possible to grow plants with reverse pepper. Apparently, not all vegetables do well upside down, but inverted pepper plants are a good option, probably because they don’t have very deep roots. And, really, why not try growing peppers upside down?

Reverse gardening saves space, is free of noxious weeds, prevents pests and fungal diseases, does not require staking and, thanks to gravity, easily provides water and nutrients.

How are peppers grown vertically? Well,

You can buy one of these Topsy-Turvy bags or a counterfeit version, or you can make your own upside-down trash can with all sorts of things – buckets, cat litter boxes, heavy-duty plastic garbage bags, reusable plastic lids, and the list goes on and on.

How to grow peppers vertically

The container can be as simple and inexpensive as a reusable container with a hole in the bottom into which the plant is inserted, a coffee filter or newspaper to keep dirt from falling through the hole, some light soil and a strong rope, wire, chain or even plastic string to eat the grass. Or, for gardeners and engineering contractors, it can be more complex and include pulley systems, built-in water tanks and elegant garden fabric or coconut fibre liners.

Buckets are the easiest to use, especially if they have lids that help the inverted pot retain water. If you have a container without a lid, consider this an opportunity to grow something upside down on the peppers, such as herbs that will supplement the peppers when they are ready to be harvested.

As for upside down tomatoes, add an opening of about 5 cm. to the bottom of the chosen container and use a coffee filter or newspaper to anchor your plant (add a slot to make it easier to install the plant). Slowly and gently push your pepper plant through the hole so that it hangs at the bottom with the roots inside the container.

You can then start to fill the soil around the plant roots with potting soil, compacting the soil as you go. Continue to fill the container until you are about one inch from the edge. Water well until it drips, then hang your pepper plant upside down in a sunny spot.
