Is it safe to put green beans that are afflicted with rust in an extend the season mini-greenhouse with banana peppers? Or will the peppers get rusty, too? I've treated the beans, but am not sure whether to put them together.
They are in pots and I've created a small hot bed using polycarbonate panels. I know it won't last long, but the peppers and beans have bloomed and are producing. We live in Michigan, so this time of year is cool and rainy so I know how the fungal problem occurred.
I'm keeping the green bean plants dry and treating them in the garage. Can I move them to the mini-greenhouse? Are peppers suspectible to rust? I realize it is fungal, but if I put the treated beans with a bit of rust on them in with the peppers, do I run the risk of the peppers 'catching' it?
As long as the plants have been treated, it should be ok. As a precaution, I would recommend treating the peppers too. This should at least minimize the chances of having them pick up the fungus. Neem oil is a good, organic fungicide that will help treat rust problems.
I just started my garden with two tomato plants and hot banana pepper plants. Tomato plants already have flowers and are each one feet tall, pepper plants are 1/2 foot I guess. I potted them with Miracle Gro potting soil. For now I am watering twice a week, if it is too hot I am just spraying water, which contains Schultz 10-15-10 liquid food mixed in it. I found a few leaves on pepper plants that turning light gray in color. So today I sprayed insecticidal soap. Is this right? I am planning to add Neptune's fish and seaweed organic fertilizer every 2 weeks once. Kindly suggest me if I am taking care of my plants properly or not.
It sounds as if the pepper has sunburned leaves. Water and fertilizer requirements vary with different factors; soil, temperature, wind, plant size and growth, sun, rain. Always follow package directions when using fertilizer and insecticides. It's possible to burn roots if a plant is overfertilized. It is better to water deeply less often than to water more frequently and less deeply. As your tomatoes set fruit, try to keep them evenly moist. To be wet then allowed to dry out will cause the fruit to split.
The pepper itself is yellow but there are purple streaks on it.
Some varieties of banana pepper will fully ripen to a purple or purplish color. This coloring is not abnormal nor dangerous. It just indicates that the peppers are fully mature.
These brown spots started appearing on my plant a couple of weeks ago and have begun to spread to different parts of the plant. I would like to know what these spots are and how to get rid of them.
Spots on pepper plants are often caused from an environmental disorder but they are also prone to peppery leaf spot. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/bacterial-leaf-spot-on-peppers.htm
My hot banana pepper is growing big but the pepper itself is rotting on end before maturity.
This is known as blossom end rot. Here is additional information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-blossom-end-rot.htm
Banana peppers in a container have black/brownish spots on fruit, also yolks of branches are almost black.
This is generally caused by blossom end rot. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-blossom-end-rot.htm
I planted 6 banana pepper plants and one of the plants grew peppers that started purple and have now turned red. Are the peppers safe to eat or use?
They are simply over ripe but perfectly safe to eat. This normally happens to being left on the plant too long.
