Default Need help grow peppers!

I'm haveing problems fruiting my peppers. I'm running dwc with 400wt hps. 16/8 light cycle. Nutes general hydroponics flora series 5ml grow 10ml micro and 15ml bloom. Plants are nice and healthy just not producing peppers. Any ideas why?

Are your pepper plants flowering? If yes, you probably need to pollinate the flowers.

They aren't flowering at all and I can't figure out why? I know I have to pollinate them when they do. But my nutes and light is right.

Research epsom salt, then follow the instructions and mist the plants with with a spray bottle. They will set flowers in no time! Works for both peppers and tomatoes.
Also put a fan on them if you don't have one.

Hello Hydrodude,

1. Change your nutrient solution to equal amounts. 10 ml micro, 10 ml gro, and 10 ml bloom per gallon. If the plants are small, use the same equal amounts, but at 1/2 to 3/4 strength.

2. Is your nutrient solution temp 75 degrees F or below all day long?

3 How much water volume is your reservoir and how big are the plants.

4. How much air are you providing the roots?

5. What is the air temp in the room?

6. Do you have any air circulation in the room?

7. What is the temperature at the plants foliage? Can you hold your hand there comfortably, or does it get hot?

8. Do you have any pictures of the plants and setup? (pictures are worth a thousand words)

9. How often do you change your nutrient solution?

10. Does the water level remain the same every day? If not by how much does it change?
