Hi Shweta,

That don't look good. 🙁

Was the medium you grew Okra too the same? I would suspect the cow manure. Was it from a reliable/same source? Cow dungs can carry these insects/pests easily especially if they are not dried enough.

 

Try replacing this medium completely as it may be infected and spreading this to rest of the plants are great.

 

You can also try adding fermented neem cake solution (mix neem cake in water and allow it ferment for 24-36 hours). You will have to stir it once a day or so. Neem is suppose to be very good insecticide/pesticide.

 

Good luck

Biju

Hi Shweta,

 

Neem cakes are made (rather by-product) by cold pressing  neem tree fruits and kernels similar to coconut cakes or groundnut cakes.

 

Neem cake is organic manure. There is no harm even if you are not really accurate abt the quantity. You can a mix handful of neem cake powder along with your soil/potting mix. You can also mix abt 250 gms of it to a medium size bucket full of water and allow it to ferment and use.

 

Best

Thanks all for update specially Srikant. I was not getting any updates on this forum and today I saw so many posts on this. So replying now.

 

Since capsicum seedlings looked so delicate, I avoided thinning them and now in pot atleast 4 are strong plant growing. They are around 1 feet long. Big leaves. But no capsicums are forming. Oneperson I enquired recently with mentioned its difficult to grow capsicum in Mumbai. Any suggestions or information? Generally how much time it takes for plant to start fruiting?

KTP,

 

when you say fruits are not forming, are there flowers but no fruits or no flowers at all. I don't entirely believe that capsicum cannot be grown in mumbai. I have personally known lots of people growing capsicum both small and large scale. So do not worry about that.

It takes about 100 days to get your first harvest if it is colored capsicum and much earlier if it is green capsicum.

Hi GG.

 

Its good that you feel that capsicum can grow in Mumbai. There are no flowers formed at all. The plant is 1 foot long now. seeds were transplanted in June 1st week.

 

Please suggest some idea so that fruits are formed.

 

Regards,
