View Full Version : First Green Peppers!

My first green peppers are growing. But the leaves are VERY dry. I'm watering the plant every day, but the leaves still curl up. Any suggestions?

Are you watering it deep or just a light water everyday? Watering shallow causes the roots to be shallow and dry out quicker. It's best to give it a gallon slowly all at once rather than a little every day.

Might be too late for this year but from what I've read in my "old-timey" books, peppers can be treated as a perennial and brought in for the winter. The next spring they are supposed to develop new leaves and start blooming from the size it was already. I'm looking forward to trying it this year because I have some great looking and neat varieties of pepper plants.
