Hi, I read on here that a lot of people say to use 1/2 strengh miricle gro 15-30-15 to fertilize pepper plant every two weeks. For the best fruiting would it be best for me to use the miricle gro tomato fertilizer 18-18-21 since it has higher potassium?

Haven't used the tomato feed but have used the 1/2 strength 15-30-15 successfully for years. But not that frequency of application. I water them in with it and then only feed them a couple of more times during the season.

Byron, where do you get 0-10-10? Is it Miracle grow?

Peppers don't need a lot of fertilization and in my opinion don't need anything special to produce well. I have grown several hundred varieties over several years using 1/4 strength 15-30-15 a couple of time as seedlings, watering them into their final pots with 1/2 strength and the only a couple of feedings of 1/2 strength during the growing season.

These are the results
