Growing peppers in 2016 with the help of smart bags

So this year I choose to only grow one type of peppers. It’s a jalapeno pepper. More specific it’s called an early jalapeno. After bloom, they should carry green fruits after 60 days and red fruits after 80 days.

This year I only grow in the dirt because I had no time for preparing my drip bucket. But I changed the location of the peppers to a place where they can get more than 6 hours of sunlight. I hope that helps to grow nice bushy plants and not so tall ones like in the last years.

Unfortunately, I have no pictures from growing the seedlings to the current size. But I take some pictures today after moving the plants in their smart bags.

The plants are now three months old and they are producing the second blooms. The first blooms where cut to allow the plant putting all their energy into growing. Now I have to watch the weather forecast and if we get a cold night I have to take the smart bags into the garage temporarily.

The smart bags are nice for preventing waterlogging in the pot. Additionally, they should help with root growth.
