Q.Carolina Reaper Plants Top Leaves And Flower Buds Drying Out

Zone La Penita de Jaltemba, Nayarit, MX | JRLowey added on July 28, 2020 | Answered

Hoping someone can help with my problem of the top growth on my Carolina Reaper plants drying out. Only thing different in the last week is there has been lots of rain. The plants are in pots, outside in tropical costal Mexico. I noticed they were really water logged a few days ago, so I moved them under cover out of the rain. Can anyone shed some light on what is happening to them?

This is disease from wet soils that do not have a chance to dry out.

A fungicide will be in order, here:
