    I've got some sweet peppers I fed with some leftover Dr Earth 5-5-5 pellets. My habaneros are still too young.

    I use the same dynagro for peppers as weed. Works well.

    Going to be giving Jacks a try here soon, too.

    jalapeno's like a lot of light, i didn't feed them super heavy, just made sure they got plenty of water and light, and gave them 150 ppm of jack's 20-20-20 once a week. they produced a buttload of peppers

    any balanced fertilizer would be ok, green peppers seem to like it when you drop the N by about half when they start to flower, Jalapenos went fine all the way through on balanced ferts

    Habaneros can't be that different, right?

    grew them two years ago, as i recall they do ok with balanced nutes, but didn't seem to need as much food as the jalapenos and banana peppers
