Peppers plants thrive best when temperatures are warm. The plants are not particularly sensitive to soil acidity, but best results are obtained in the 6.0 to 6.8 pH range.
Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist; especially when the fruits are developing, peppers need about an inch of water a week.
Fertilizer: As the peppers develop, switch over to a fertilizer higher in Phosphorous and Potassium. Farmers often make the mistake of providing too much nitrogen. The result is a great looking bushy, green plant, but few fruit.
Pests & Diseases: Several insects enjoy your pepper plants. Spider mites and aphids are the most common, with an occasional borer. In many areas, it is infrequent. For the infrequent problem, try an organic insecticide or dust. While many viruses and diseases can affect Peppers, it is somewhat infrequent. Fungal infections can be treated with fungicides. Apply treatment as soon as you see it.
Tips: Peppers are self pollinators. Occasionally, they will cross pollinate from pollen carried by bees or other insects. To minimize this possibility, don’t plant hot and sweet peppers too close. Don’t worry though, as it will not affect the fruit of this year’s crop. The cross will show up in the genetics of the seeds, if you save them.
