Young chiliplantorna urgently need more space and increased nutrient supply to continue to develop. If they stand too long in nutrient poor seed compost stops growth up. Why do you retrain the plants. I tend to school if my small chiliplantor when they received 2 – 4 character sheet.
Typically, schools to if in small pots (6 – 8 cm, plant pots for bedding plants works great) where can now plant grow until it is time for retraining no 2. The pots must have holes in the bottom. Use a good potting soil that is näringsberikad. Mix well perlite or vermiculite with soil for increased oxygenation.
At the retraining no 1 planted small plants no deeper in the earth I usually put them so deeply to heart leaves almost reach down to Earth. Take care of the roots, chilies have very sensitive roots. Make a hole in the Earth and stick down the plant and press the Earth lightly around. Earth to come into contact with the roots, but not packed too tightly. Water gently through the Earth and let the excess water drain out.
They retrained the plants placed slightly cooler at first and as bright as possible, any time during the complementary lighting, fluorescent lighting with color code 840 or 865 works great. If you have many pots easier watering if they are placed on trays with under irrigation rugs. How to easily produce a under irrigation tray you see here. Make your own irrigation tray
To bend with is chiliplantorna still in growth and get used to it. The nutrients available in the soil is usually enough a few weeks but after about 2 weeks, you can begin adding weak liquid nutrition in the water. After about 4 – 6 weeks or when the little pot is completely genomrotad, it is time for retraining no 2
In the pictures I show how I do at retraining no 2 but the principle is the same as at the first retraining. Here I would retrain in rose pots on 1,5 litres with a rosjord which is a soil for plants that require a bit more of the Earth. I use rose pots so that they take up less space because they are higher and narrower than regular pots.
The last retraining to the final pot on 6 – 15 litres depending on chilisort do I do then it's time for pitchers to be exhibited in summer or if the pot would have time to be totally genomrotad so I get to do it before!
