#1644949 Help With Pest/Disease ID?

Posted by p3nt4g0n on 26 July 2019 - 11:57 PM

I had the same spots on my plants but worse. I blamed it on the soil being too dense. When I encountered this problem I went back to the store and purchased more pepper plants and stuck them in miracle gro potting mix and they have thrived without any issues. With that said, all of my pepper plants that were in the "topsoil mix" that I bought from my local mom and pop store, have turned around for the most part and thrived. I believe this happened because our weather got dryer. Only two superhots are still kinda struggling but doing much better and flowering. This is my first year gardening so I'm learning step by step. But like I said, too dense of a soil mix I believe caused fungal problems for some of my plants.

#1636740 Cal-Mag Question

Posted by p3nt4g0n on 10 June 2019 - 10:17 PM

Cal-Mag is light on nitrogen at 2-0-0, so as long as you don't exceed the recommended one teaspoon per gallon, you aren't going to harm anything.  I've used it in past to clear up calcium deficiencies with good results.  Just mix up a one gallon batch and water as you normally would.  If you run out, make another one gallon batch.  


To elaborate on my first sentence, if your plants aren't suffering from anything that Call-Mag will clear up, it won't make them any worse and if you already spent the money on it, you might as well use it.


In any event, post some pictures and some of us may be to able to help some more.


Good luck and welcome to the forum!


I used a gallon on 20 plants, which is probably barely anything. I used the recommended amount per gallon. Here are some pics:

#1633245 Leaves slightly yellow with brown spots w/ pics

Posted by p3nt4g0n on 21 May 2019 - 12:05 PM

Need some help with identifying my problem with my plants. Most of my pepper plants came from Bonnie Plants, they were all transplanted in a new raised bed. The soil I'm using I got from a local store and it wasn't the bagged type. They said it was a soil mix consisting of topsoil, compost, and pine fines. I've had them in the ground for about 4 weeks now. As far as feeding history goes, I didn't initially put down any slow release fert. Two weeks after transplanting I used Miracle Gro water soluble fert. I decided two weeks after that(now) to put down some Miracle Gro slow release. I've sprayed once with a insecticidal soap. Yesterday I sprayed all my plants with a Bonide copper fungicide. Hopefully somebody can chime in and let me know whats going on with my plants. Here are the pictures:
