Trifetti Chile pepper is normally fairly low maintenance and is normally quite easy to grow, as long as a level of basic care is provided throughout the year. Being aware of the basic soil, sun and water preferences will result in a happier and healthier plant.
Trifetti likes a position of full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Trifetti 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. Use USDA Hardiness Zone 5 - 12 as your guideline for the appropriate climate for this plant. Ensure your soil is loamy and has a ph of between 7.0 and 8.5 as Chile peppers like a neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.
