Why Pepper Needs Specialized Nutrients

Pepper plants require specialized nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and micronutrients like calcium and magnesium to support robust growth and fruit development.


Water pepper plants profoundly and consistently, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged.


For optimal growth and fruit production, place pepper plants in a sunny spot that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.


Use well-draining, nutrient-rich soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8 to promote healthy root development and nutrient absorption in pepper plants.

Additional Tips
