Hi All,

I have a serious problem here! My bell pepper plant is slowly dying (I think). It is turning yellowish and the bottom row of leaves are starting to fall off. A few leaves (2 or 3) have a few bug bites on the leaves. Any ideas as what this could be? Bugs underground? Need some type of vitamin in the soil?

Just 10 days agao the plant was a healthy green! I have a picture of the before and after if anyone would like me to email it to them. The sad part is that it has a bunch of peppers growing on it!

Thanks for your help!
Brenda

Hello Brenda,
You may have red spider mites. I had them in my peppers this spring. Zapped them with soap. Take your magnifying glass and look on the underside of the leaves, they can't be seen with the naked eye.
Hope this helps.
