Q.I’m having problem growing peppers

Zone 5 | eagles1975 added on June 13, 2012 | Answered

My green pepper plant was growing well and had a small pepper. One day all of the leaves had fallen off the plant. The small pepper looks fine except there are no leaves on the plant.

There are several things that could cause this. Underwatering is the most likely culprit, but over watering (plant is in standing water) and a fungus is also possible. Make sure the plants are getting enough water but are not in standing water. As a precaution, treat the plant with a fungicide.
