Bell Pepper

Anonymous added on September 19, 2011 | Answered

I have a bell pepper plant that is just not producing any bell peppers. I have been giving it 5-10-10 and all it did was get bigger. It now stands 6 feet tall, and no bell peppers. What is wrong? It is either a red or a yellow bell pepper.

Add more phosphorus to the soil. Your soil is probably lacking this and peppers need this to flower. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
