  • Been mixing wheelbarrows of soil the last two days and transplanting a bunch of pepper plants outside. The weather here in South Florida is finally nice out this time of year and not extremely hot/humid

    Good. My paranoia has kept pests at bay for the first time and now everything's budding up and my mildest even has flowers.
    got the material, waiting on the sewing machine. time to make a bunch of fabric pots

    You can basically make 30 out of a 3'x50' roll or 40 out of a 6'x30' roll.

    If you get the fabric at a great price on sale maybe like $20-$25 that would be under a dollar a peice

    Plus incredibly stonger/longer lasting. You need to get some good quality thread and sewing machine to make them fast
    As soon as I think my grow list is complete, find myself adding more peppers

    True,Definitely way better than something going wrong lol

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

    BDBeatz
    @spicefreak thats a good way to put it, i've been adding more once space is available also.
    the temperature is already in the 80's in south florida

    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
    BDBeatz
    BDBeatz
    @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

    ...... and only one plant per pot.
    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.

    BDBeatz
    Thanks Chilidude, I wish I did this much sooner lol, been watching alot of videos on youtube about pruning and topping

    @AJ Drew Just seen your comment, I wish I would of found the Walking dead place too. I was only there 2 days and the ride seemed forever, about 9 hours each way
    First year growing peppers been going very slow, with alot of set backs/problems. This has been a big learning experience. Staying positive
    BDBeatz

    @Calchilihead Thanks,I definitely will. Everyone here has been very helpful and I appreciate all the advice from THP.

    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?
    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...
    Has anyone used Black Kow compost manure in there potting mix for growing peppers?
    romy6
    romy6
    I have but I would use is sparingly . Clumps up the soil not allowing roots to breath properly .
    BDBeatz
    BDBeatz
    @romy6 Thanks, I was worried about adding compost manure too
    Which is best for potting mix. Perlite or Vermiculite??
    Hybrid Mode 01
    Hybrid Mode 01
    Depends on what you want. Vermiculite holds a little water and is better for hot, dry climates. Perlite is the best for aerating and draining.
