    I don't even have a grow list. I just have a collection of seeds to thumb through when there's germination space.

Has anyone used those previously used black nursery pots for thier pepper plants? Just wondering becuase I have read/heard that some plant nurserys and big box stores give them away for free

    @Crispee-FL Thanks, will do. What size pots do you use if you have a lot of plants? Or do you plant in ground?

    I do strictly container grown peppers I have used 5 gallon plastic nursery pots but found they are a little tight for the roots. Started switching over to 7 gal. And 10 gal. Fabric pots with greater success. Hope that helps

Finally topped and pruned my pepper plants tonight. It looks weird seeing them like this but it did free up alot of space

    They may look strange now, but wait a month or two and the numerous sidestems the topping will make the plant grow will make it so much more productive in the end, if the plant needs are well taken care of.

    It still kind of early in the season. Pepper tend to start slow and then take off. You might have good results yet.

    @AJ Drew True, I agree. This is all new to me so I have been learning a lot this year from everyone. Thanks

Started a new peat moss seed tray about two weeks ago and a white mold/fungus keeps appearing even after spinkling cinnamon on top. Any suggestions how to get rid of it?

    Try spraying a mix of 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide on the soil

    @moruga welder @MikeUSMC Thanks, I put a small fan next to my seed tray and actually sprayed just the 3% hydrogen peroxide on top and it seemed to wipe out all the white fungus

I have a big problem, I started noticing that a lot of my germinating pepper seeds were growing about a inch tall or even just sprouting but then they slowly die off. Today I found out that this is called damping off. Can anyone please suggest any methods to cure/prevent this problem instead of starting over. I have started a second separate seed tray too, but it looks like this is already happening again...
