Habanero Plant Not Growing

Zone Texas | dwhit75 added on October 2, 2012 | Answered

I live in Texas. I purchased a habanero plant from Wal-Mart about 3 months ago. I also purchased serrano plants. After 3 months, my habanero has not grown an inch. My serrano has produced plenty. What am I doing wrong? I now have my habanero in a small pot and it has a mix of sand and top soil. I water about twice a week. The plant is not as green as when I purchased it but it is not yellow.

You may need to fertilize the plant, as the lighter green is an indication that it may be low on nitrogen or iron. Compost added to the soil may help. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-fertilizer.htm
