As with tomato plants, peppers can also suffer from a virus known as leaf curl. This may be what your pepper plant is experiencing, though it could also be attributed to a lack of water or restricted root growth.

As for the blooming/fruiting issue, your fertilizer may be too high in nitrogen. If so, you will get plants with plenty of foliage growth but little to no blooms, which means no fruit (peppers). You can offset this by adding some phosphorus rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil around your pepper plants.
