Thai Chilli not thriving ?

    4 responses

Farouk starts with ...
Hello All,

I planted thai chilli seedlings I brought from Flower Power Nursery which I planted in ground over a month ago but they are tiny very small & growing very very slowly small leaves, they are green just not thriving, everything else is doing fine. I seem to always have an issue with this family of plants such as Chilies, Capsicum etc Tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, cabbage etc all doing well except these chilies , any tips please ? I have planted them straight into the ground with really decomposed processed cow manure from the big nurseries & watered daily with osmocote slow release fertilizer & volcanic rock dust.

You're overwatering and over fertilizing it. You are killing them softly with too much love. Ease on watering and fertilizing a bit. Monitor the water. Just give them a drink when they are about to go dry . With fertilizer follow the manufacturers specs. Don't overdo it. Are they getting a minimum six hours of full sun? This guys love the heat. Anything less than 6 hrs of sun will see them struggle. You might also want to check the PH of your soil. Chilli peppers want their soil between 5.5-6.8 for optimum growth. Adjust soil PH accordingly if it's out within the prescribed range. Apply lime if it's too acidic and apply rock sulfur if it's too alkaline. Follow manufacturers recommendations for optimum result.

Thanks for that, sure must be the cow manure & being watered once in the morning & once in the evening daily oops.

Thanks for all the tips will follow.

a couple of the plants have started to get stronger now and got some height on them now & they have set some chilies, other chilies around them aren't too happy though, I don't think its the sun as the happier ones are shaded under the large sunflower the ones out in the sun are the smaller ones must be that the smaller ones have a stronger dose of chicken manure ?

Hi Farouk
It's also beneficial now to apply Epsom salt to your solanaceae family veggies. It really work wonders. It greatly help to improve flowers and fruit production and assist plants to become greener and bushier. Just follow manufacturer's specs but a bit weaker to be just on the safe side.

Happy Gardening :-)
