Peppers take their time while growing, so before transferring them outside, you should plant them indoors and keep them inside for some weeks (approximately 2-3 weeks) before taking them outside. Make sure that the soil is moist most of the time and not dry, but do not over-water the buds. 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temperature to keep them in. You will need to make sure that the room they are in has a proper amount of sunlight.

After 2-3 weeks, transfer them out in the soil; keep in mind that they will grow more where there is a lot of sunlight. Add some manure or mushroom compost to keep the soil moist and fertilized, or you can also use a mixture of seaweed and fish emulsion.
