JALAPEÑO HELP!

So i got a jalapeño plant from the lady next door that moved out. And i got a big pot ( no holes ) and lots of organic soil. The plant has been there for about 2 days... And its all droopy. Ive been watering it and it has been receiving sunlight... I can't ask the lady whats going on because she moved!. Can you please help me :(

A picture would be helpful. I would try to drill holes in the bottom as peppers don't like water standing at the bottom of the pot.

Re: JALAPEÑO HELP!

It is nearly impossible to keep plants (other than those adapted to swamps) alive in pots with no holes. You have to get it out of there and re-pot it into a container with good drainage. And until then QUIT WATERING IT! All that water you have given it has not gone anywhere!
