In order to grow black pepper seeds, you will need to get a pot and fill it with soil. You will then need to plant the black pepper seed into the soil and cover it with about an inch of soil. The pot should be placed in an area that has plenty of sunlight and water it every day until you see green shoots coming out from the ground. Once this happens, you can start watering it less often but still keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t dry out too much.
Black pepper can be grown in containers or pots on a windowsill, or outdoors in warmer climates with protection from frost.
