house plants :)

i’m currently growing some bell pepper plants and a small chili plant is starting to sprout at the side of the bed. i used some alfafa pellets as mulch and nitrogen, ground egg shells for calcium, epsom salt for magnesium and also a little bit of coffee grounds. hopefully it will start flowering in a couple of weeks! πŸ™‚

On the bottom I have some black mustard sprouting! let see how it’s doing in a couple of days.

note: most pepper plants likes more alkaline growing medium and mustard likes more acidic. if slugs or snails start appearing in your soil or plants, it’s a indication that your soil is lacking calcium. they are there to help produce calcium by slimming around but they need to survive too, so they chomp! πŸ˜‰
