We brought along fresh chili centil from Tanah Merah..., kakdah took out a few from the refrigerator for her menu. It's almost a month now, there are still some available. Within the first week upon arrival in Johor, I took out fresh chili centil seeds and germinate the usual way. Soak for an hour or two, then wrap in damp kitchen tissue until they rooted.
It's almost two weeks now. After a month, they will be placed in bigger pots. Serious farmers would normally put one month old seedlings out into the field, but I would rather wait until monsoon is over towards the end of January.

A few days ago, responding to Azmi's question where I got chili centil seeds,
I said I will spare a few seedlings for him. I am exploring who else is keen in gardening around here, to spearhead another serious agro adventure in Johor Bahru. Growing chili preferably.....
