How Do I Grow Stunted Cayenne Peppers in Pots?

bdeshazo48 added on June 1, 2015 | Answered

Can you please suggest what might be making the fruit on my cayenne pepper plants be curling up? It looks sort of like a disease but I have never seen that before. Should I feed them more than once a week? Could it be bugs? I have applied "Sevin Dust" 5% to the tops and bottoms of the leaves but that does not seem to help. Please help me! feeling helpless in Texas!

Your plants should be planted in good well draining potting soil.
Soil should be watered well, kept moist but not soggy.
If would cut back on the fertilizer, half strength, you want the plant to produce peppers not just leaves.

Fruit that is distorted can be caused by inconsistent water levels.
