The Bell Pepper known as Capcicum

in Natural Medicine2 months ago
This Bell pepper plant was given to me by my friend @clicker because they didn’t know how to grow it? And one more thing, they don’t have enough space and soil to grow it. Bell Pepper needs enough light from the sun.

Hopefully I can grow it and multiply the fruit. I remember, in the Philippines, at my age of 13 I had more than 20 plants of it but life did not last long. Because the soil I used was not fertile and I didn't water it often.


The Red, Orange, and Yellow Bell Peppers are full of great health benefits, they're packed with vitamins and low in calories! Bell Peppers also contain a healthy dose of fiber, folate, and iron. They are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. "But my favorite was the Green Bell Peppers for the salad."

The use of Shaving Wood

There are many uses for Shaving Wood. It is often used in Mushroom breeding, and the rest is made into food for chickens. It is also effective as a soil fertilizer, as it helps retain water in the plant. But it is better to boil first the Shaving Wood for at least 1 hour to remove the remaining chemicals in the wood if it is coming from the factory-like what I have.


If it has been boiled for an hour, remove the water well and wash again with cold water and squeeze well. If the smell of wood is still strong, boil again for 30 minutes and repeat the process.

In a large container, pour Shaving Wood and also pour 5% Brown or Black sands if you are from the middle east, otherwise dry loam soil. Next is the crushed Egg Shell that you can see in the picture below. Mix well with your hands.


This method is very good for plants because the extra calcium will help prevent blossom-end rot. Plants like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, in particular, will benefit from shell fertilizer. If you only have indoor garden space, eggshells can still give your plant babies a boost in the form of "eggshell tea."

The Plant Transplantation

Before you transfer your plants to the pot, you first need to put the first layer on the pot, this is the dry grass or leaves as you can see in the picture below. If you do not have dry leaves, you can use shredded newspaper for the first layer. Next, you put the soil mixture in the pot and make sure it is compressed enough.


When removing Bell Pepper from its nursery, it is necessary to pull it out slowly with a stick or spoon so as not to cut its root. And always remember, once you transfer it to a new pot, gently water it until the whole soil is wet. Do not take more than 5 minutes before hose it after it has been transferred.


Remember, this plant is greedy for water, but it needs to be exposed to the sun in the morning until 10 and in the afternoon from 4 until the next day. This is how easy it is to take care of Bell pepper.

Happy planting and Gardening! ^_^

I really enjoyed this post. I feel as if I'm just getting to know you, and that makes me happy. I watched one of your youtubes, but I can't understand you - are you originally from the Phillipines? How did you end up in Abu Dhabi?

Thank you @riverflows! I forgot to put an English translation. I am Filipino originate from the Philippines but there is Chinese blood flowing to me. I decided to go abroad when I was 21 years old to work here in the United Arab Emirates.

I came to this country with no other known job other than being an assistant in the office or at a fast-food chain. I also knew nothing of the computer of that time. I just taught myself to learn a few things. And I also understood the English language very poorly until it developed slowly.

When I learned to handle a computer, I studied MS Office, followed by AutoCAD on my own effort and through the internet. Sometimes I also ask my friends here how to use the software. Today, I am a full-fledged Interior Designer using AutoCAD, Photoshop, and 3D Max. But my passion for the plant could not be taken away from me. (^_^)

I love me some peppers. I've got Capsicum Annuum (Bell Peppers), mini sweet peppers, aji amarillo's, serranos, and habanero peppers growing where I'm at. Soon once they grow and produce enough, I'm thinking of selling some of the produce for some extra cash.

I loved this post because it gives interesting ideas to prepare an excellent soil for any crop. I was unaware of the technique of boiling sawdust, excellent idea! I hope to see your peppers already fruitful. A big greeting.

Me encantó este post porque das interesantes ideas para preparar una tierra excelente para cualquier cultivo. Desconocía la técnica de hervir el aserrín, ¡excelente idea! Espero ver tus pimientos ya fructíferos. Un gran saludo.

Lots of interesting information. I don't really understand the part with the shaved wood because my English is not that good hehe. Does it mean that you cut ordinary boards into small pieces and cook them until they fall apart ? Shaved wood is the same like a tree without bark ?
I'm wondering if I can give coconut substrate to my peppers this time and if eggshells to Chillies also give at a later stage of development or only at the beginning hmmm... what do you think?

And can you describe to me what exactly this black sand is? Is it ordinary black sand or is it something else called that? because in mine country black is only coal ;)

"Shave wood", it was from the used wood that the carpentry shop remove from the excess skin of the wood. The same like you show "COCO PEAT".

  • Sorry my English is bad... 🙂

Black Sands here is a mixture of brown sand, charcoal, and crash dry leaves. 😁

aaa ok then it's all clear :) thanks for the clarification :)

Do you know the difference between coco-peat and shreded wood?

COCO-PEAT can't absorb more water and it cannot stay cool the water longer. SHREDED WOOD, the water can stay longer 3 to 4 days and it can maintain the coolness under even the above is look dry. 😉

aaaaa that's very valuable information, thanks.
