When to feed peppers

Hello. I bought “Gumistar”, the instructions say that for root dressing it is necessary to breed 12 cups per 10 liters of water. I got peppers. When will it be possible to start feeding them with this solution? And is it necessary to prepare a solution in this proportion?


Peppers should be fed when planting seedlings on a bed (in a greenhouse), if your region requires pre-growing seedlings. If it does not, then when the second pair of leaves appears. Regarding concentration - I would halve it. Anyway, I have doubts about the need for additional nutrition. I have been planting peppers in a greenhouse for 12 years, and maybe sometimes a little bit of universal Kemira put. Productivity is always excellent, except that spider mites bother, but they are already struggling with other means.
