Size of Upside Down Pepper Plants

Zone 33019 | isamitre added on October 15, 2011 | Answered

How big do pepper plants have to be in order to be switched upside down? I have a few bell pepper seedlings but I don't think they have even their first true leaves. I live in Hollywood, Florida. Is that hot enough? Thanks.

I would wait until they are about 6" tall before transplanting them into an upside-down planter.

You are in zone 10, which should be warm enough. But, Florida has seen some unusually cold weather over the past few years. If you are expecting temps below 50F, bring the plants indoors until the cold passes.
