How To Thin Your Hot Sauce Seedsheet

Hot To Thin Your Hot Sauce Garden

Thinning extra seedlings is essential to get the best harvests from the Hot Sauce Seedsheet.

To give plants in the Hot Sauce Seedsheet enough room to grow, some varieties require thinning once the sprouts reach 1-2 inches tall. It may be difficult to pick out the precious seedlings, but they can be eaten, or delicately re-planted in another area of fresh soil.

Steps for thinning the Hot Sauce Seedsheet:

  1. First, water the Seedsheet to saturate the soil and avoid damaging the roots. 
  2. Second, select the healthiest plants and pull out the extras with your thumb and pointer finger.
  3. Thin the varieties in the videos below from the Hot Sauce Seedsheet
  4. Gently pat down the soil around the remaining plants.
  5. The carrot seedlings are edible but the pepper sprouts are NOT. Feel free to snack on the carrots, or top your salads with the delicate, micro-greens.
  6. Watch your Hot Sauce plants grow lush for many future harvests!
