Q.Ghost and Carolina Reaper Pepper plants

Zone Henderson, Texas | srs20 added on September 17, 2019 | Answered

Thought I would send update on current status of plants I was having problems with earlier in summer. Didn’t know how to find my old posts to add pictures, so sending them here. They are looking healthy and plenty of leaves. They have slowed down production, but it has been extremely hot here. Moved them under roof with open sides. Still get plenty of sun. Continuing with same program that brought them back to life. Added spraying a water mixture of magnesium about every 10 days. A few blooms coming back. When they are ready, they will produce again. If there is anything else someone thinks I should do, always ready to listen. Still applying CalMeg as directed.

Other than, general, chili care... Nothing more is necessary, unless you plan on bringing them in and under lighting for the winter.

I'm glad to see that they are still thriving!

Just make sure that you are letting them dry out a bit between each watering to avoid issues. They are well equipped to deal with the heat.

This article will refresh you on general chili care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/growing-chili-pepper-plants.htm
