Pepper pick.

Hello everyone on my channel!

To begin with, let’s define what a pick is and why do it?

DIVING is the transplantation of GROWN seedlings from a common seedling container into separate pots or glasses in order to get a large number of well-developed lateral roots and a developed aerial part.

Therefore, when only cotyledon leaves are formed on a pepper, such a pepper cannot be considered grown up and it makes no sense to pick a pepper during this period. Nevertheless, in some articles or comments, information slips that pepper should be dived no later than when the cotyledon leaves appear. I think such claims are completely far-fetched.

DIVING is done in order to plant plants from a common container, just when it has grown and there is not enough space in the container for its full development, both for the development of the aerial part and the root system. How can sprouts interfere with each other, on which cotyledon leaves have just opened, and the root system is one core root, which can be very easily damaged during early picking?

So why do you need to pick seedlings?

It is necessary to transplant seedlings into different containers in order to get strong bushes with a well-developed root system. Otherwise, in a common and cramped container, they will compete with each other for light, volume, nutrition, moisture, as a result of which the seedlings will stretch out, the stem of the plant will become thin and fragile, and the root system will be poorly developed.

It is optimal to pick peppers in the phase of 1-3 true leaves. Ideally in phase 2, but even if, with a large number of seedlings, I did not have time and made a pick when the fourth leaf appeared, then nothing bad happened with the seedlings and the future harvest, especially if the seeds in the seedling container were sown not too close to each other.

If the seeds are sown very close in the seedling container, then you should try to plant the plants as early as possible, in the phase of 1-2 leaves, because with a later picking, the roots of the plants will intertwine and be damaged during transplantation, and the aerial part will interfere with each other and compete between itself for light, nutrition, moisture, and this will lead to the stretching of one plant and the oppression of another. However, after picking, the plant will still catch up and enter full growth.

Do I need to dive pepper or should it be sown immediately in separate containers?

There are publications and comments that pepper cannot be dived at all, that it does not tolerate picking and it must be sown immediately in separate containers. Again absurd! I have been sowing peppers in a common seedling container for 15 years, and then dive. And before me, my mother did this all her life and nothing bad happened to pepper! Pepper after picking actively started to grow, developed well and gave an excellent harvest! Always! If there is a desire, a lot of space and the ability to sow pepper immediately in separate containers, then no one forbids doing this. One does not exclude the other, but the statement that pepper cannot be dived and should be sown immediately and only in separate containers is not confirmed by any scientific and amateur facts!

Is it possible to deepen pepper seedlings when picking and transplanting into the ground?

Another myth is that pepper should not be buried when picking or transplanting into the ground. From my own experience, I’ll say that when picking, I plant pepper in the ground to the cotyledon leaves, because when picking, the earth in a glass is loose and after one or two watering it sits down and thus the stem is still exposed. In addition, after picking, even if you deepen the pepper, then in just a couple of days the stem grows well and the cotyledon leaves again rise significantly above the soil level. Let me give you one more example. I didn’t watch the seedlings for one year, the lower leaves turned yellow and when transplanted into the ground, I removed them, and the bush itself was planted deeper into the ground. And again, nothing terrible happened to the pepper! The harvest was excellent, and at the end of the season, when the pepper was pulled out of the garden, the root system of the pepper was excellent and very powerful. Think, that many gardeners noticed aerial roots on the pepper trunk. Naturally, if air roots appear on the stem, then the pepper must be deepened in order for a more powerful root system to develop from them. In the process of growing, it happens that the earth near the trunk shrinks so much, due to watering or rain (when growing in the exhaust gas), that the upper roots are exposed, in this case I add soil to the bush. But among the comments I met such that in no case should you add earth to pepper. Well, for sure, I don’t need such comments and I advise others to analyze the harm and benefit and make the right decision before listening and doing everything that dubious experts write or comment on. in order to develop a more powerful root system from them.

Thus, everything is learned by experience. You need to learn from scientifically based information, well, from your own mistakes and from your own experience.

I talked about my own many years of experience and my observations. How you do it is up to you to decide. Experienced gardeners and gardeners have long adapted themselves, and they know how and when to pick a pepper, whether it is worth it to dive or if it needs to be sown immediately in separate containers, whether it will be harmful if the pepper is deepened a little and whether such a technique will affect the plant in any negative way. And for beginners, I advise you to rely more on scientifically based recommendations, but not be afraid to experiment and compare your experience with the experience of other gardeners. In any case, you should not be afraid of horror stories that in no case should you do one way or another, such information is not always reliably correct.

All strong seedlings and excellent harvest!
