Bell peppers

Zone 28314 | Anonymous added on May 16, 2019 | Answered

I started growing bell peppers and they have been doing great but today I noticed purple on stem and joints. I read that it can be normal or a fungus. How do I tell the difference and what should I do?

This is a normal coloration at the joint stems on pepper plants.

Though a fungus can also cause coloration changes; you would also be seeing other symptoms and declining of your plants.
