These are Mammoth Jalapeños. This problem seems to occur on peppers just as
they start to ripen. Growing in 5 gallon buckets, SIP, similar to global buckets
dot org. Reservoir kept full. Osmocote general slow release fertilizer. Full

RE: Blossem end rot on peppers?

i found that lst year i had the same thing on my bell peppers and it was from a combo of too much water and not enough calcium. i bought a bottle of "calcium" it has lots of other nutrients but when i used it i did not get another pepper with the rot. i could be wrong but that is my experience.

Yep, I think Eric is right on.


RE: Blossem end rot on peppers?

If you are getting a bottle of Calcium, what exactly are you buying? band, type, application?

RE: Blossem end rot on peppers?

the stuff i bought last year is called "maxi-cal" it has an N-P-K rating oh 10-0-0 10%calcium, 1.1%Mg,and 7 other micro nutes. it says as a "foliar spreay use 1-6Tsp/gallon, i used 2 tsp/gal and watered with it for 3 waterings and it worked. this year i read about Smokemaster mixing Lime with Vinegar and i use it with every watering for the flowers and i use Vinegar/FP on the peppers since FP contains Micro Nutes and well i have no peppers yet but it worked last year.
