Hi all, I'm not really sure what's going on with my pepper plants.
I have a couple of Redskin Peppers, one planted in a pot the other in a
glasshouse border. Both plants are roughly 6" - 7" and appear to have
stopped growing up. They seem very bushy for all the size of them.
Flowers are just about to appear on both.
I also have a Cayenne and a Apache pepper and while they haven't gone
as bushy they do seem to have slowed down vertical growth.
Is this normal for these types of peppers? I've a feeling that that the
three in the glasshouse border may be getting overwatered while other
plants are getting watered, would this effect the peppers like this?
Appreciate any help or guidance available.
Three are 3 in the soil next to what Americans would call a "greenhouse"?
Which way does the wall face? How was the soil prepared? Here, 18 lbs of
aged chicken manure/ 100 sq. ft. (8.18 kg/9.29 sq. m.). What is the
soil, clay, loam, sandy?
It could just be a matter of a "watched pot". Since they don't sound
like they are in distress, put a tape to them and measure them. Then
tell us how old they are, what kind and how much fertilizer, what have
temperatures there been like since the peppers were planted, how much
sun do they get, what is there soil moisture like, how big are the pots,
and what do you mean by "may have been over watered?" Since you describe
them as bushy, apparently they are expanding spherically and not
linearly, which would be more dramatic.
