Oregano
Q.

What’s happening to my oregano and bell pepper?

[email protected] added on March 12, 2019 | Answered

About a week ago, my oregano (about 3 months old) was looking really nice. Then the leaves started to turn purple-brownish and so I harvested a good bunch of them. However, they just seem to look worse and worse every day. Attached below are pictures. Also there's a weird thing growing on a newborn bell pepper, is it dangerous?
