Soil soil, non sa Nicke!

EarthFor indoor cultivation, it is just Earth and its composition is more important than many think, It also has a significant impact on the availability of plant nutrients is added the plant. It doesn't matter if you have the best food in the entire values unless Earth is right samansatt of the plant still does not take advantage of all the good that it adds.


Chiliplantorna needs nutrition to grow, and nutrients in the soil are dissolved in water. Draining the water too fast through the pot, there is a great risk that the earth does not retain nutrients.

A good humusrik bag-agriculture (soil with mikroliv and structure) With a blend of extra leca or perlite so drained excess water more easily removed (It assumes that you have a big hole in the bottom of the pots) Such a soil also holds water well so it does not dry up too quickly. So it is a big difference between what you put in their pots and plant their chiliplantor in.

A very good soil to have as a basis when it comes to påsjord is wejbulls rosjord, Okay it's not cheap but it is like many other things in life that you get what you pay for.

You can and know how to do so are they to their own soil mix. Mix a lucker and porous soil with some clay,decayed bark, sand and compost or a cheap potting and add the well cow manure some lime and bone meal.

Here is a simple recipe

1 part torvmull, 1 part well cow manure, 1 part compost soil, 1 some decayed bark sand + clay. Add a little lime and bone meal and all's well.

    Where can I get hold of sand and clay? Any suggestions on the make? All I've seen is sand sandbox sand.
    Tovmull, cow manure, compost soil, bark, calcium and bone meal, visit the flower country, I have seen.

      Hi Michel!
      Clay occurs naturally in the ground in some places, You can't get your hands on clay there is granulated clay to buy, is used to water plants. When it comes to sand so it need not be super nice it can be a bit gravelly, found naturally in the wild. Know that some buying cat litter and mixes in.

    I thought about doing a test with soil, MOSS, a little bit of chicken manure, calcium and bone meal.
    Am thinking that I would like to have chicken manure with a greater concentration in deeper in the pot, so the plant can access more nutrients when it has grown strong.

    If it ends with a small amount of liquid nutrition at least every other time you water them then it should be fine.
    What liquid do you think is the most comprehensive and cater to a reasonable amount of most substances chiliplantorna need?

    I grow reaper, Thai culinary, the hybrid super thai F1, Pimenta puta la madre, Bolivian bumpy, takanotsume, Onza and some little shrub called Filius Blue.

      Hi. It is possible to found the pot with nutrients it needs at a later stage but be careful with chicken manure that contains much N nitrogen and it would only be when it is growing big but at the flower and fruit-setting would have less of the N and P and K. It is better to base with P and K, then, some lime and bonemeal and provide a liquid nutrition with N during adolescence.

      Feed every time you water but only about 2 ml for each liter of water. A good nutrition is this
      that gives ca 500 litres of nutrient-water it can be used throughout the plant's life span.
