When planting pepper plants, does anyone or has anyone tried putting a match or matches in the ground with the pepper plant?

I thought I remembered hearing something about it.

I had never heard of doing this but I did find this in a search:

 

 

When its time to set the pepper transplants out I throw a teaspoon of Epsom salt in the hole and a handful of fertilizer. I carefully remove the pepper plant from the pot and plant it so that the stem is an inch or two lower into the soil. You can do this with pepper and tomato plant. They actually develop more roots on the stem.

 

I also add 4 matchsticks about two inches from the plant on all sides. The peppers benefit from the magnesium in the match top. I have had healthier plants and better crops since do this.

I put matches in some and not others a couple of different years and could never see a difference.
