My red savina habaneros began flowering about a week and a half ago and
i've dropped them to 12/12 to start producing bounty. They are not in
complete darkness but very dark. I have noticed they are very, very
thirsty lately and wilt quite quickly. In my experience this is odd
for this strain as they generally like the soil very dry. Because this
is clearly indoors is it possible the humidity is just far too low for
them due to heat pumping throughout the house?
Also I have been placing a fan near them to put strain on them to
strengthen them overall. Is this a wise idea during flowering? Should
I leave them alone?
I stopped misting them because it appears the leaves are burning..Does
it make sense to put an open container of water in their area or even
use a humidifier to keep them a little bit more used to their environs?
Finally, I bought some "premium vigoro" tomato and vegetable food
(12-10-5) which is supposed to increase yield. Has anyone used this?
Should I use it? I'd really love to get a great yield out of my plants
this year. I am already using miracle grow soil and am a little
nervous that i'm adding too much to the mix but I do want to give the
peppers the best TLC I can imagine.
