bhut jolokia PH & more
I am starting my first bhut jolokia's.
I have read a lot here and elsewhere about soil requirements. I see conflicting advice on PH. It seems people are leaning towards a more acid soil. Like 5.5-6.5.. Is this correct ?
I am debating correcting my Miracle Grow Potting mix with some Aluminum Sulfate.
Im using the Luster Leaf 1601 Rapitest Soil Test Kit to check PH along with N-P-K... I did find a huge imbalance having excess P and K but way low N. I am now adding Alaska Fish Fertilizer to correct the lack of N..
Im growing these on my apartment patio and they get full sunlight for the first half of the day.
Im using large pots without a water trap on the bottom to let the water flow easily out and not create wet conditions for the plants. I understand dry is better ?
I have used some Bat Guano and some Bone Meal some time back.
I am also occasionally using "Chili focus" plant food.
Any suggestions ?
