Soil soil, non sa Nicke!

jordFor 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.

      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.

    Jag tänkte göra ett test med jord, torvmull, lite hönsgödsel, kalk och benmjöl.
    Tänker mig att jag gärna vill ha hönsgödsel med en större koncentration djupare i krukan, så plantan får tillgång till mer näring när den vuxit sig stark.

    Om man toppar med en liten mängd flytande näring åtminstone varannan gång man vattnar så borde det bli bra.
    Vilken flytande anser du vara mest allsidig och tillgodoser en rimlig mängd av flest ämnen som chiliplantorna behöver?

    Jag odlar reaper, thai culinary, hybriden super thai F1, pimenta puta la madre, bolivian bumpy, takanotsume, onza och nån liten buske som heter Filius Blue.

      Hi. Det går bra att grunda krukan med näring som den behöver i ett senare skede men var försiktig med Hönsgödsel den innehåller mycket N kväve och det vill den bara ha när den växer sig stor men vid blom och fruktsättning vill den ha mindre av N och mera av P och K. det är bättre att grunda med P och K alltså lite kalk och benmjöl och ge en flytande näring med N under uppväxttiden.

      Ge näring varje gång du vattnar men bara ca 2 ml till varje liter vatten. En bra näring är denna
      som ger ca 500 liter näringsvatten den kan man använda under hela plantans livstid.
