- Seed Storage Tips:
Our Jalapeño Pepper seed has been adapted generation after generation to hydroponic / aeroponic growing conditions in the Southeast growing region. Our Jalapeño Peppers have been adapted to grow in high humidity and heat. Adapted seed means stronger more prolific plants and success in meeting your growing needs if you have a Tower Garden FLEX or Farm Stand hydroponic vertical garden growing system. We recommend providing your peppers with some sort of support to lean against like the Tower Garden FLEX Support Cage (if you're growing with a Tower Garden FLEX Growing System).
If you live in the SE, we do recommend providing 30% shade for your Jalapeño Pepper plants in the hottest months while green foliage is still growing the plant. When temps begin to back off of the heat index, with proper nutrients in your hydroponic / aeroponic growing system, you'll see a flush of flowering and fruit set and be rewarded with a bounty of Jalapeño Pepper bounty!
We particularly love to make Christmas Jalapeño Pepper Jelly with this variety to give as gifts during the holidays!

Q: What does "Hydroponic Seeds" or "Hydroponically Adapted" in the product description mean?
very seed has a lifespan and will vary by cultivar, but with some basic good practices you can significanly prolong the life of your seed and protect your investment with a few best practices:
The goal of whatever "container" you choose is to idealy limit moisture and UV light exposure which can reduce germination rates over time. Use a clean and dry glass jar (we like to use an amber colored wide-mouth Mason Jar) with a lid that closes tightly that is large enough to hold several seed packets. Using a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol, wipe down inside of glass jar and allow to completey dry. This step will help to kill any bacteria or fungi residue that could be present on the surface of your jar (especially if your jar has been sitting in storage for awhile).
If you have a food preservation system like a vacuum sealer system or a canister that can seal with a vacuum like this, these work well also — just keep in mind that if you have to access your seed supply, you will have to cut the package open and reseal to put back into storage.
