Lifecycle Growth Questions
Here are a couple of pictures of my Purple Tiger that I got through a seed exchange with a local fellow noob gardener here in LA. :) I sprouted it in a 3oz cup, in planting soil that is sold dehydrated and you add water to it to rehydrate it. Sorry am not sure what it is called. Anyway, after it sprouted I transferred it into its current home which is a 16oz cup with some Miracle Grow Organic potting mix. The little guy has not really grown in at least the last 2 - 3 weeks. Which brings me to the reason for this post. I'd like to find out the following.
1. Plants seem to hate being repotted, should repotting be kept to a minimum? Or is there a right and a wrong way to do this? Aside from being gentle of course and not touching the roots.
2. What is the best schedule/timeline for repotting/moving? Is it based on size or number of days?
3. What size of the container would be ideal?
4. What kind of soil and nourishment would be ideal? Organic if possible.
Lastly, I couldn't find a whole lot on the fruit/pod itself. 3 different sites give 3 different SHU ratings :) and not much info on their flavor. So for those of you that have grown it and don't mind sharing the info, I'd be very happy to read it.
Thank you very much in advance.
