San Marzano and Bell Pepper Update

The stem repair to our San Marzano plant seems to be holding up. Rather than wilting above the break, the plant is green and putting on more leaves. I'll give it a few more days and take off the tape.

Also, while I'm doing updates, here is a look at our incredibly slow growing bell pepper plant. It's a whopping four inches tall now. I planted this thing back in July with the expectation of it having peppers by late October or early November. It looks like I missed that by several months.

That's really encouraging about the San Marzano! I don't know what to say about that pepper plant though. I still have a 3" tomato transplant outside that I put out in August. LOL. It doesn't grow, die, or anything.

Good to know about your tomato plant. I wonder if the same holds true for other members of the Nightshade family?

Aw wow, that pepper plant is growing pretty slow, lol.

My pepper plants, for some reason, are really growing nicely. I'm feeling pretty optimistic now. It's only taken them 4 months to produce any veggies.

I started some habaneros (which I guess are familiar to bell peppers) in february... as well as poblanos and anchos. The habaneros are by far the smallest ones. Two days ago I got some advice from a plant expert and said that habaneros need shade. Maybe it is the same for your bell pepper.

This is my first year trying to grow anything... and it is quite exciting how much I am learning by doing, and gets me anxious about next year, which promises to be better... thanks to the lessons learned.
