Just planted out some pepper starts, and they are already showing signs of nitrogen deficiency.
The leaves are all turning light green.
These are in large 25 gallon sub irrigated planters, a long with some tomatoes,so the perfect setup for nutritional deficiency.
I have plenty of rabbit dung to top dress, or dig in, but will that be available fast enough to save these peppers?
Well yes, but I have also burned seedlings with diluted pee-water, and burned seedlings don't recover. Maybe it wasn't diluted enough: a few days later I could see that overfertilised salty look (slightly discolored soil with a tiny bit of white crust around the edges of the container) . I think one issue might be that since I plant seeds in pure sand, there's no organic matter to handle the input. Established plants in soil with organic matter seem to always welcome diluted pee-water.
