Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Tokyo Hot is thought of as tender, so it is really important to ensure that the outside temperature is well above freezing before planting or moving outdoors. Tokyo Hot needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Tokyo Hot from seed

Look to ensure a distance 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - bury at a depth of at least 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Tokyo Hot about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Tokyo Hot

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Tokyo Hot is a tender plant.
