Thank you so much laaz I might just do that!  Do you think my soil will need more than 50% of turface since it doesn’t look as bark filled?

So I tried some of my soil mix on my reaper peppers. As you can see the single plant in my mix is much better than the others in garden soil alone.

Not a good idea to mist on pepper

I mist them all the time in this heat, never had a problem. This weekend will be 100F+ with insane humidity. I have ghost peppers still going from last year, over 4 ft tall & loaded with peppers.

If you have insane humidity why do you mist?

To keep everything hydrated during the day. Things tend to dry out very quickly in the sun.

I use the Expert Garden Soil mixed with sharp sand light weight agate (fired clay) works fine for me. I keep em watered and fertilized and have no root problems......
