Q. what soils are best for Jalapeno plants?

I’m doing a science project and I will be doing my project on which soil will work best for this plant. I don’t want the plant to die and I want good results, so what would you recommend as my 3 choices for soil or dirt types? I was thinking sand, organic soil, and regular natural dirt. What do you think?

Q. Why does my jalapeño plant look like this

One day my plant is blooming with flowers then the next it looks like it’s dying. Should I cut off the leaves and start over or should I just continue letting what’s happening run its course?

Q. Jalapeno plant growth stunted, leaves curled

I live in Maryland and have two jalapeño plants that don’t seem to be growing. I planted them about 2 months ago. Not only has their growth stunted, but the leaves are curled. They get at least 8 hours of sun, and I believe I’m watering them properly. My other pepper plants (purple peppers and ancho) are huge and producing peppers. I do have a weed problem that I try to keep up with but we all know how that goes. Haha.

I have attached a photo of the plant and a photo of the underneath of one of the leaves (a leaf that has not curled yet). I’m wondering if it’s aphids. I don’t see any little bugs though.

Also, there are bumps where new stems would/should be growing. I wonder if something has eaten them or if this is a result of a growth problem.

Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

The photos aren’t great. Sorry about that.

We did not receive the image, but your description of your plant sure helps.

This is most likely a pest issue and Aphids are often the cause, though there can be other pests.

Spray the plants with Neem Oil. Neem Oil is organic, safe for people, pets and bees. It will help with most sucking insects and even works as a fungicide.

Here are some links with more information.

Q. jalapeno peppers

I moved jalapeno plant indoors for the winter and it still survives. Will this plant come back in spring and produce more peppers?

A.

You can overwinter Pepper plants. If you successfully maintain the plant, you should be able to produce another crop of peppers from the same plant!

Q. Jalapeno Peppers

Hello, my Jalapeno chilli plant peppers aren’t hot. In any way. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to marinate, pickle or something to bring heat out? or is it just that my plant isn’t hot? Thanks, Anthony

Black joints are normal and nothing to worry about.
