Growing pepper in a greenhouse


Bell peppers are a relative of potatoes and tomatoes, as they all belong to the Solanaceae family. And such environmental parameters are most convenient to create and maintain in a greenhouse.

You can start growing pepper in a greenhouse from the first days of March by sowing pepper seeds on a moist soil. For better germination, seeds for better germination, and this will not happen earlier than after half a month, are recommended to be covered with foil or glass.

When the sprouts of sweet pepper grow a little and get stronger, they should be planted in individual peat pots (2 sprouts per pot). At this time, it is important not to forget about fertilization. For peppers, it is best to use liquid dressing, which can be compost, mullein, and superphosphate.

In order for the cultivation of pepper in the greenhouse to be successful, one should avoid sudden changes in temperature. This is detrimental to the productivity of plants.

Greenhouse sweet peppers are also more susceptible to disease and pest infestation than others. Pepper is a favorite treat for aphids and spider mites. To combat this scourge, you can use such a rapidly decomposing insecticide like celtan. Keltan, if necessary, can be replaced with karbofos.

If gray-brown spots have formed on the fruits of the pepper, then this may be an indicator of a lack of moisture. Untimely watering of pepper in the future can turn into a defeat of the fruit with gray rot.

If the plant develops slowly, and its leaves are too pale, then the reason for this may be a lack of nutrients.
