I’m on the horns of a dilemma. This year I bought bat guano, as usual, to fertilize my pepper plants. When doing so they said that they had two different kinds, one from Mexican bats (which had a higher nitrogen content), and the other domestic bat guano, which has a nutrient ratio of 3-8-1. I opted for the latter since they only had the MexicanType in 40 lb bags…and I have a relatively small garden. I now have plants that are less than 1 foot tall with sizeable peppers on them. I’m wondering what my next step should be…should I opt for something heavy in nitrogen such as fish emulsion, something midrange in nitrogen content, or continue with the existing fertilizer? I am unsure which route to take due to the overall pepper growth cycle. Thanks for any information!
Don’t add too much nitrogen or the plants’ energy will go to vegetative growth rather than pods. You might consider finding a supplementary fertilizer with a ratio of 3-8-8 or something similar.
