Plant Matchsticks with Peppers

If you put a couple of matchsticks in the hole before you put your pepper plant in, you will be providing the plant with phosphorus, and you will get a more robust plant.

Hello ! Matches could provide Pepper plant with something it needs to grow but if you use the traditionnal household safety matches it can't be phosphorus. The tips of the matches used to be made with phosphorus but were dangerous for the users and for the health of the employees of the factories who manufactured them, until someone had the brillant idea to put the phosphorus on the striking surface instead of on the matches.


The formula most used today for household safety matches, according to wikipedia, is "potassium chlorate, with a little sulfur and starch, a neutralizer (ZnO or CaCO3), 2040% of siliceous filler, diatomite, and glue". It could be potassium chlorate, which is used as a fertilizer that has a good effect on your Pepper plants.
