I'll start this off by saying that I'm very, very new to growing peppers and that I live in zone 3.
About two weeks ago I bought some pepper plants, including three gypsy peppers. Tonight I noticed that while two of them are flowering, they have wonky leaves. The leaves at the bottom are yellow (not blotchy; the whole leaf and stem is yellow) and drooping. The leaves at the top are a bit crinkled - there are similar pictures on this website [url]https://www.ecoseeds.com/Pepper.growing.tips.html[/url] under "bonemeal." One of the leaves had a small chunk missing/shriveled.
The plants are about a foot tall and I have them in 12" wide and 20" wide containers. I think they're crowded so I'll probably be moving them into individual containers when they get a bit larger.
Also, some of the jalapenos and cayennes (between 4-7" tall) are getting dark stems. I can't get a photo right now since it's dark out, but I'll try tomorrow.
I give them a bit of water every day (just enough to dampen the top of the soil) and I fertilize them once a week with some kind of vegetable Miracle Gro that my neighbour gave me. Am I giving them too much or too little water/Miracle Gro, or do they have some kind of mineral deficiency? I haven't checked under the leaves for mites.
The daytime temperatures have been between 20*C - 30*C, but it gets to about 12*C during the night.
I'll try and get some photos up tomorrow. Thanks in advance.
