Q. Jalapeno Pepper Blossoms falling

I bought a Jalapeño plant from the store and it had buds on it. It flowered and then a few days later the flower fell off. Is it normal? Or can I do something to stop others from falling?

Q. I need help identifying disease on my plants.

I have a moonflower vine and a Jalepeno plant with the problem shown in the photo. I recently had a huge problem with aphids (hopefully I’ve taken care of those). I would love it if you could help identify this problem.
The second photo is of what is left of my stock plants. Do you detect disease or other problem? They get full (Texas) sun in the morning.

It looks like damage from the aphids. This will recover with time. I would keep dolomitic lime handy, as this is very helpful for a recovering plant.

Can you include a photo, your USDA zone, and what conditions the plant is experiencing? This could be many things, and I will need more information to make an accurate judgment.

Mature plants that are fruiting will require something that is high in phosphorus, with an intermediate potassium amount, and low nitrogen.

"Bloom Boosters", as they are called, will contain just those proper ratios. You will want to apply these at 1/2 or 1/4 strength to start out. This is to ensure that the plants respond well to the nutrients.

Q. Jalapenos not hot

My jalapeno crop is never hot, not even slightly. They taste pretty much like regular green peppers. Is there something about the soil they are in? Tomato and other peppers do well in the same soil. What could the problem be?

t could be in the genetics or a cross pollination has occured, or a factor in the growing conditions. Here is an article with some points to consider:
