Flies on my bonnet
I've been creeping on these forums for the past couple weeks after I did a quick google search on what was wrong with my habs. (And I learned from you guys there was nothing wrong, they just grow slower than my other plants) I've learned a lot from everyone and will have a completely different set up to my garden next year and will hopefully have much more interesting plants than what I got from the store this year if I can bring some up from seed. Thanks for all the info I've gleaned and hopefully someone will have an answer for me.
I have 13 peppers overall with some in pots and some in the ground. My Scotch Bonnet is in a pot in a mix that is primarily MG Orchid Soil with some perlite and MG Organic. Since planting it I've learned this isn't the best mixture, but I don't feel like I can replant it yet because it's so stressed. The bottom leaves are yellowing with the veins a deep green. I've fertilized and tried to make sure I didn't under/over-water. It'd wilt bad in the day and then some days recover with no general pattern. Eventually I noticed tiny little flies were burrowing in the soil and would all come out when I watered. I sprayed Sevn on it, but they keep coming back since they just hide in the soil. Can someone tell me what these things are, if they're causing the problems, and how to get rid of them?
