my fighting peppers
Hello! I'm a first time grower, and by accident. My fiance's cousin works in a seed shop and I asked if she knows anyone who sells ghost peppers cheaply. well i got a nice two inch plant with about six leaves. I had to battle aphids for nearly a month, thanks to shell flour froma neighbor (about two weeks to notice anything) and an organic spray. Plus lots of squishing. On the plus side, been over a week since my last aphid!
Its in a hanging pot, easily drained. my soil consists of primarily Miracle Grow (for orchids) that allow easy drain. It hangs at the edge of the porch so with minor wind the rain will get it. Next door has a sucessful vegetable garden and i see bees, despite living in the city. It's hot so I'm tring to keep up watering, but I'm falling behind.
Now that my pest problem is gone, how long till i start seeing flowers and hopefully peppers? This is my first attempt at growing anything. Pictures soon to follow
