I have 2 pepper plants each in a 1 gallon pot. I've researched container sizes and it looks like my beans and peppers can remain in their 1 gallon pots, while I had to change to much much larger ones for my tomatoes and zucchini.
My peppers are watered constantly, I spray an insect repellant on them about once a week, they are given water soluable plant food 1-2 times a week, and they get plenty of sunlight and heat. Tulsa is HOT and humid right now.
Question is.... why haven't I seen any pepper blooms? I assume I should see some flowering at this point. I have green beans already and my zucchini are FINALLY and SURPRISINGLY coming about-- 1st fruit this weekend!-- but my peppers seem stagnant. I read the other day in Tulsa People magazine that peppers are a cinch to grow in my climate, yet I haven't seen success. They keep growing taller and stronger and leafier, but no buds- no peppers- no success. Any suggestions? Is it normal to have to wait and wait? I didn't think the zucchini would come about then I turned around and I have fruit, same with the green beans, so maybe the same will happen with the peppers. I guess I'll just wait and keep doing what I'm doing.... they look healthy, but just a bunch of green leaves!
