Q.Bell Pepper Plant Leaves

Anonymous added on June 25, 2011 | Answered

My bell pepper plant’s leaves are turning upside down. We have had way too much water this year but they seem to be doing okay with that. Now the leaves are turning with the underside up. This is very strange.

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 if it's in a container.

I have the same problem. One large leaf on a bsnna pepper plant has turned itself upside down. This is not from wind. The stem of the otherwise perfectly healthy leaf has just grown in a spiral until the leaf is upside down. Ive tried to gently unteist the stem several times. It stas right side up for a while but inevitably flips over again
Andwers to this are hard to find as they all assumd you have leaf CURL But that is NOT the situation. The leaves arent curled, they’re upside down.
Any answers as to the cause or a solution to that?
It would be much appreciated. Im debating whether to let it hang there upside down, or simply cut it off.
