Q.Follow up to pepper plant problems
Not exactly a question, but I had asked for some help with my ghost pepper and Carolina Reaper plants in a previous question. After reading a considerable amount of information, I purchased a product called CalMag with iron. A 2.5 lb bag is mixed with distilled water that makes a concentrate. App 2 teaspoons in a gallon of water is the proper application. I have Used it once a week for the last month and the plants look great. Production has also increased. The Carolina Reaper is still slow in producing, but more fruit is appearing. I also Moved them out of direct sunlight. They receive the afternoon sun for app 4-5 hours. It has been mid 90’s with some days 100 degrees. The ghost peppers have produced the most. Also one of the plants I purchased as a ghost turned out to be a Naga Viper. All are extremely hot, but very good flavor. Use with caution. I thought this might help someone. The leaves have stopped turning yellow and dropping off. Plants look healthy.

WONDERFUL!!!!! Thank you for your feedback. I remember handling this issue! CalMag is a wonderfully quick acting product, and is considerably more expensive than Dolomitic lime. This is why I always recommend the lime, however, this is a faster way to cure your plants, although more expensive.
I'm glad that they are going well, now!
