When to bring peppers indoors

10 October 2018 - 12:16 PM

First year of growing peppers and So far I love it.

My ghost pepper plants are still going strong with lot of new buds and flowers. I am not sure if they will see the light.

 

Temperatures are going to drop to low 40s in coming weeks.Attached File  temp.JPG   53.77KB   13 downloads

 

So my questions:

1. When should I bring the peppers indoors? TIll what temperatures can the plants survive outdoors(They are in self watering pots which are not easy to move)?

2. I am planning to overwinter at least one of them. So should I go ahead and prune the plant even when there are unripe pods?

 

Please help.

 


Color of Peppers

05 August 2018 - 01:25 PM

This is my 1st year growing peppers and started with Bhuts. Plants are growing good and had my 1st harvest recently.

I want to make powder out of those and since I dont have a dehydrator, I thought I would dry the pods in sun.

Problem is, I see that peppers are changing color (more like loosing color) when I try to dry them.

I have cut and harvest seeds from couple of pods and those peppers dried fine (top left)

So question is, is this normal? Or have I committed any rookie mistake?

For those who want to jump on instantpot craze, watch out for the deal on instantpot during amazon prime day (starting from today). If last year's prime day is any indication, there will definetly be a deal on their best seller. I will post the link as soon as I come across the deal.

It is totally worth it.

Today I discovered that one of my bellpepers has rotton at the bottom. This is not touching ground. Can you please identify if this is BER or bacterial or any other?

Pepper pods drying and dropping

28 June 2018 - 09:55 AM

Hi,

 

I am new to growing peppers.

I am growing ghost pepper, that birds eye , that red hot and bell peppers.

 

Till now my plants are healthy and setting pods. But recently I found that healthy pods are drying out and dropping.

This happened with Bell pepper and this morning I found it happened with one pod on ghost pepper.

 

On examining closely, I found these little bugs on the pods. Can you please help me identifying them and the best course of action to get rid of them?
