How many peppers per planter?
I'm planning to grow at least some of my peppers in home made self-watering planters constructed out of kitty litter buckets. I'm not sure if I should plant one or two per planter.
I checked out what the Earthbox people say for their commercial planters, and I did the math for plants per cubic inch of potting mix. Just to make things difficult, this calculation suggests that I should plant 1.5 plants in each. Helpful!
What do you think? I realize this might vary a bit based on the variety. Two of mine are unknown varieties from non-English-speaking neighbors, but the others are: Jalapeno, Cayenne, Espanola Improved, Yummy, and Cubanelle. The unknown varieties are a sweet salad pepper (probably Italian), and a small red hot pepper (probably also Italian).
In case it changes anyone's opinions, I have no shortage of plants. I easily have 5x the number of plants I intend to grow.
