Just what is this NPK stuff you only use 10 tiny particles of?The variety is spicier and shape is thin. I dnt know exactly the ratio of NPK but I apply about 10 tiny particles to the plant after 20 days, approximately.
There is no covering over the plant.
Very few of the leaves go yellow which I cut off, manually.
Some of the blooms dropped without any visible reason. Yet now there are no blooms, anymore.
I am thinking to hard prune the plant, should I?
You could also try hand pollinating use a cotton wool bud and tickle the inside of the flowers I use and old Electric toothbrush with soft bristles Works well for meHello,
My chilli plant is having lush of stems and leaves but rare fruit. Could anyone plz tell how to get plenty of Chillies instead of leaves.
Each to there own I willing to hand pollinate as it takes so much effort (not) and I’m not into shaking my chilli plants bad advise and only watering is surely subject to weather conditions !Hand pollinating is a waste of energy.
Shake the plant once a day.
Stop immediately what you're feeding with and replace with seaweed-based tomato feed.
Water no more than twice a week.
If it was a matter of opinion, I'd agree with you.Each to there own I willing to hand pollinate as it takes so much effort (not) and I’m not into shaking my chilli plants bad advise and only watering is surely subject to weather conditions !
How much time does the chilly plant take to flower? I had sown seeds in May but still there are no flowers but plenty of foilage.IF your plant is not making blooms it is probably one of three things. The first being that the plant is too young. The second is that your soil doesn't have enough phosphorous, the P in NPK, and the third is the variety of pepper.
If the NPK you are using has a high N number that can lead to a LOT of foliage and few fruits also.
If you sowed the seeds in May it will take about a month to reach transplant size. Then it will take, depending on the variety, at least another month probably 2 months or more before it starts to make buds. The hotter the pepper the longer it takes.
