Pepper plants should be grown in full sun. Prepare the garden, adding plenty of compost, manure, and a general fertilizer. No matter what type of hot pepper you grow, they like the weather hot. Pepper plants prefer moist soil. Add plenty of water during hot, dry summer months. Add mulch around the peppers to keep down weeds, and to retain soil moisture. As the peppers develop, switch over to a fertilizer higher in Phosphorous and Potassium. Gardeners often make the mistake of providing too much nitrogen. The result is a great looking bushy, green plant, but few fruit.

Hope this answers your question.
