I don't have any truly hot peppers, I have Numex Big Jim, Anaheim, Anchos or Poblano whatever you want to call them, Yolo Wonder, Sweet Bananas, Cubanelle, this range, the coolest of the hots, and a few that would be in the bell pepper family. Most of my bell peppers died.
They will soon be maybe that first foot tall. Right beside tomatoes that are younger, and doing great! Crazy peppers. I am blaming the drought, I am watering almost daily, but apparently just not the same as a decent rain!
Talk to your plants.... If your plants talk to you... Run!
