They've been sitting on folded up paper towels that I'm replacing every few hours which become soaked.
Thanks for the advice.. I'll keep an eye on them and keep switching out the paper towels.
It's been about 3 weeks since the tops of my pepper plants were critter pruned. Remaining stems were more than adequate in size with some being 6 inches. The pruned plants, interspersed in the same bed as non pruned plants, all the same variety, are not growing nearly as fast as the unpruned ones. They have small side branches growing, but just have been severely compromised in my opinion. These plants are in full sun, also in SoCal and will take more than a month to catch up to their untrimmed brothers.Rue Barbie wrote:I wasn't intending to, but a ground squirrel or bunny pruned a few of my peppers. The side buds are beginning to grow, so we'll see what happens.
Normally, I would agree, but he seperated 7 biggish plants from 1 pot and transplanted them. I would think it's likely transplant shock, and not PLR.Sniffs. If the leaves are curling up in the middle of the day it is probably physiologic leaf roll and a normal response to heat.
yeah, i've watched most if not all of Ray's vids.. we chat now and then.. (been awhile tho) - he also goes by Praxxus55712. anyways, he does offer some excellent tips that i use myself.sniffs wrote:I only did it because i've been watching a ton of videos by a guy on youtube that goes by Ray, his channel is called VoodooGarden and he prunes all his peppers. He shows before and after and not only is the stalk much thicker afterwards(to support the weight of a ton of pods) but he doubles or triples the amount of thick stalks that grow off the main talk to yield even more pods.
