Tip 2: Pick a seedling
Especially in need of diving plants that have surface roots.
Tip 3: Do I need peppers pick
The best option is to grow the seedlings in separate pots. But not everyone has this opportunity. After all, the majority of gardeners grow all their many-sided seedlings on window sills, where there are few places. And to build a "hill" with additional lighting in a small apartment, many can not afford. And as is customary, peppers are grown in one bowl, and then they are engaged in picking.
When do you need to dive peppers?
Sown seeds of peppers in February by mid-March yield 4 ... 5 leaves and begin to compete for the place of residence. The best time to do the picking is March.
But if the peppers are sown in very small bowls, the seedlings begin to stretch strongly, and, as a rule, when the first true leaves appear, they suddenly slow down their growth, which means that they should start diving immediately. If you ignore this moment, the peppers will “freeze” the development and stop growing. Quality seedlings at the time of landing in the ground does not grow.
To water or not water the pepper seedlings before diving?
Some believe that a day or two before the pick, the peppers should not be watered. Others say that a small pre-irrigation helps to preserve the root coma. Both can be applied. The main thing - to preserve and not disturb the roots. Peppers, unlike tomatoes, hard to restore root damage.
Do I need to pinch the main root when picking or transplanting?
Most often recommended pinching the main root of the seedlings.
However, if the roots are strongly intertwined, then it is better not to agitate the roots and plant each pepper in a separate pot, bypassing this manipulation.
Unlike tomatoes, pepper seedlings can not be deeply deepened. The stem of the peppers does not form additional roots.
How to water the dive peppers?
After transplantation, each plant must be watered.For irrigation use water, separated and room temperature. For better survival, 4 ... 5 drops of zircon per 1.5 liter bottle are added to the irrigation water. Spray the seedlings with this solution and create additional moisture for the plants if the room is too hot. Other rooting preparations will also be suitable (root, humate, etc.).
After transplantation, the peppers are put in a warm place, without drafts. It can be a window sill, a table. In the first days after transplantation, seedlings are lightly shaved from direct sunlight.
