Same name and taste, but different shapes and types, this is Java chili and ordinary chili that we know. Java chili is an Indonesian native plant which can be planted in yards, fields and some still grow wild. This plant is still related to pepper, steamed, and betel nut.
Java chili plants have the characteristics of growing up, twisting or creeping, and having sticky roots. The roots are almost the same as the roots of betel or pepper plants. For the growth of this plant requires plants that are large enough to attach the roots.
How to plant this plant can be by cuttings, following the steps:
- Look for a healthy parent tree that is more than a year old, fertile and straight stems but not too old.
- Cut the branches with a sharp knife 30-40 cm long or have 3-4 segments. Discard some leaves to reduce evaporation. Brush the bottom of the cuttings with a growth regulator or by soaking with 25 percent coconut water for 12 hours.
- Prepare a polybag that has been filled with seedling media in the form of a mixture of fertile soil, sand and compost in a ratio of 1: 1: 1. Plug the cuttings upright into the media as deep as 4-5 cm and dense around the base of the cuttings.
- Flush with water until it is moist and place it in a safe and cool place.
Transfer to the garden if you are around 5 months old.
It should be remembered that this plant can soar following the height of the trees, so it needs to be pruned so that these plants remain short and productive. Pruning can be done after the plant reaches a height of 1.5 meters and then pruning 3 times a year. Pruning aims to make the Java chillies shorter and easier when the harvest arrives.
