So this is a kind of open-ended question, if it's too broad I'll try to be more specific, or remove the post.
- Do any of you have good resources for information on organically growing peppers?
- Do you have any pro tips that you've experienced yourselves?
- Do you have experiences growing in climates like Los Angeles?
- Why are some things to consider as Best Practice with regard to growing food plans, while keeping them healthy (i.e. organic).
Basically, I have a mild amount of experience growing plants, but mostly flowers and such - not edible plants. I did do a small amount of farming, but that was up in central Oregon, and all you basically have to do is plant the seed and water occasionally (and put a lot of effort to keep deer away).
Now, my wife and I are trying to grow some of our own peppers and herbs for cooking. Since we have an apartment, that means potted plants only ( 😢). It's very different than my other experience growing anything.
Anyway, all that said, our primary challenge now is dealing with pests and fungi/illnesses as they show up. Some isn't bad, but too much has resulted in 2-3 of my wife's plants dying. F we can put together a good enough collection of data, maybe we can make this into a wiki or something.
Thanks in advance for any contributions you all may have!!
