    • Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and deter weeds.
  6. Fertilization:
    • Apply a balanced fertilizer or compost around the plants after they start flowering to support fruit development.
  7. Pest and Disease Management:
    • Monitor for pests such as aphids, caterpillars, or pepper diseases. Use organic pest control methods if necessary.
