Peppers Wilting

Anonymous added on May 9, 2014 | Answered

In the morning and evening, my peppers are nice and perky, but during the heat of the day, they get badly wilted, almost to the point of dying. I keep them watered and they have good nutrients. What is going on?

This is simply due to heat stress and other than keeping the soil moist or adding a translucent shade cloth for extra afternoon shade, there's little that can be done. Normally, this will not hurt the plant as long as you are keeping it well watered.
