water Peppers in final pots taking a long term to need water


I've put my peppers in their final containers and although they seem healthy it's taking a while before I need to water them again. Its been over 7 days since I've watered them. The soil on top is dry as it should be but further down the pots they're still quite damp. These plants are living in a greenhouse outdoors.

Should I be alarmed?

Cheers. I've actually been fine. I started by directly watering exactly where I knew the root system started and now they're requiring more and more water.

Always learning! I hope things go well for you too.
