How to transplant pepper seedlings

You will need
  • The soil substrate is 30% organic, plastic cups, water, a teaspoon, fertilizer.
In the Siberian and Ural regions of Russia, growing peppers without seedlings is impossible. Basically, for the reason that this vegetable slowly sprouts, and it develops for a very long time. However, on condition of sowing seedlings in early spring, the pepper still has time to ripen in a short Siberian summer. First, take care of a special substrate in which you will grow seedlings of peppers. Experienced gardeners are advised to cook it themselves. To do this, take a cubic meter of humus mixture of about 0.6 kg of ammonium nitrate, 1 kg of superphosphate, 0.8 kg of potassium chloride. Well, if the substrate is 30-45% will consist of substances of organic origin. Peppers are very fond of this soil.
Lay out the finished substrate in separate containers. These can be plastic cups, pots, yogurt cups, and so on. Now determine the seedlings that you will replant: choose the strongest and healthiest individuals. Small and thin without regret throw it away. Begin transplanting with the appearance of the third green leaf at the peppers. This usually occurs 20 days after germination. Using a teaspoon, make wells in each container. Take out a seedling with a lump of earth on the roots and transplant it into the hole. When transferring, carefully hold the seedling by the lump of soil, as touching the leaves and the stem is an additional stress for the plant. Tamp the hole well so that there is no void in the ground. And then water the transplanted plant.
After transplanting, the pepper may stop growth for several days, but then it will begin to develop again. It is very important at this time to create favorable conditions. Comfortable daytime temperature for seedlings of pepper is + 20 ° C. At night a slight drop in temperature is allowed. Plants love sunny places, but don't put them where the leaves can get burned.Draft and cold are unacceptable, as the plant will cease to develop. Best of all, if the transplanted peppers will stand in a permanent place. For irrigation use warm distilled water. Do not allow leaves to wilt due to lack of moisture. However, the land in the pots should not be constantly damp. This will cause the appearance of a black leg, which can destroy the seedlings.
After some time, the peppers transplanted into separate pots can be fertilized. To do this, use the following composition: 2 tablespoons of superphosphate, 1 teaspoon of potassium sulfate, 1 teaspoon of urea per 10 liters of water. Or use for fertilizing any other complex fertilizer. Dilute it according to the instructions and water once a week. In the complex fertilizer must be present nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, as well as a set of trace elements. Use for fertilizing also natural fertilizers: biohumus, granulated bird droppings and so on. In this case, follow the rule: it is better to underfeed than overfeed.
