TwowheelinTim: big pig peaches: I brought some of my hot peppers in a few weeks ago to hopefully safe them for next year. Last year I lost everything to whiteflies (I think) and root rot (over watering). This hear I washed the roots down to bare roots and doused the plants with Permethrine before rinsing them off and potting them.

I have them in my basement under the florescent light I use for seed starting. They initially lost all their leaves, but have regrown some.

I just have to get the watering right and keep my fingers crossed about the whiteflies.

I did try a few sprays, and followed all the advice about repeating treatment regularly last year, but nothing worked to kill the bastards off.

I finally dusted the plants and soil in diatomaceous earth and that seemed to do the trick. I actually came up with that one on my own, so I don't know if diatomaceous earth is a problem. However I think I overwatered trying to compensate for the whitefly damage.

Wear respiratory protection when spreading diatomaceous earth products. You really don't want o be breathing that sh*t

You're not my superior!

Seriously though, shouldn't be a problem. For some reason I have a bunch of n95 masks laying around.
