Ok, so I transplanted 6 sweet pepper plants probably 5 or 6 weeks ago, and since then, they have just sat there. No new growth at all. The top 10 inches has 50% compost, but that's really all I added to the soil. I'm new to the organic world, and I really didn't do the research neccesary prior to planting. What can I do now? Should I add epsom salts? Should I sprinkle greensand or lava sand or something else around the root zone? Please help me out! My tomatoes are beautiful, squash and zucchini are thriving, radishes and beets doing well, cucumbers finally coming around, eggplants are lagging. I'm up on top of a ridge in the Kerrville area. Thank y'all in advance.

Smiles,
Eric

Pepper plants are fairly slow growers and couple that with translplant shock.....

I would just give it a good feeding with bioform or garrett juice and let it be. Make sure it's getting plenty of sun and don't overwater.
