Here are a few pictures showing two plants. Both were planted at the same time. The only difference is the potting soil I used, there in containers.

Here is the lush one.

The puny ones I had were in four 10-gallon containers. I decided to dig two of them up and replace the potting soil. I also think I may have been watering to much. The other two puny ones I put Epsom Salt and fertilized with some 6-12-6 (Hasta Gro). Hopefully now these guys will take off and bear some peppers.

So what did you use with the lush ones.I used Perfect potting mix to grow in the bags and they did great. Split the bags the soil was in.Poked holes in back for drainage. Used MG potting mix in buckets and that worked good. Tried putting plants in the MG potting mix in bags like I did the other and they died.But they grow good in buckets.Don't understand it. deanna

Deanna, I used the Pefect Potting mix for the lush ones. I got the potting soil at Walmart. What kind of peppers are you growing?

Yes the Perfect is better than the Miracle Gro like I said and you prove it too. I have Big Bertha and Goliath grillers and something else green. I can't remember right now. No hot peppers as I do not like them. But I seem to have some disease going on right now. Went to the beach for a week and now there is something on my tomatoes and peppers. I sprayed Ortho Garden disease spray
I beleive it is. On the tomato forum someone was showing the same problem on their tomatoes as me so got what they recommended. I have some things in buckets and some in the bales of wheat straw. deanna

I myself prefer organic. However, I know the perfect mix is probally not. It is low on nutrients though. Good luck with your plants.

Here is the small one yesterday. I reduced my watering regime, gave Epsom Salt and Fish Emulsion.
