Hello,
I planted habanero and jalepeno plants 3 weeks ago they were about 6 inches tall. All was good they grew to 18 inches and started bulbing. Peppers look all good and today they are wilting and look like the plants are dieing. I water on a normal once a day in the morning. Also it has been HOT. I really don't wanna loose these plants any information would be helpful. Thanks :wink: :?:

Did you put a layer of mulch around the plants? You may be watering too much. Try mulching then watering deeper but less often, every couple of days.

How did you prepare the beds before you planted?

You are overwatering!! Drooping does not automatically mean dry! Water deeply then let it begin to dry out before you water again. Poke your finger all the way in to the soil, by the pepper, to see if it's still moist. If it is....just walk away...
