There is no one set amount for watering, as there are dozens of factors that can influence how much water a pepper plant needs at any given time. These factors can include age of plant, size of plant, type of soil, current temperatures and humidity, state of fruit and amount of fruit as well as weekly rainfall. A general baseline is considered to be 2" of water a week for a plant in the ground (more often for container plants).
