why do my bell peppers show signs of leaf curl
I planted red and yellow bell peppers about a month past. Plants seem to be doing well, reaching 8-10 inches in height. Now they seem to be starting to have the leaves curling. WHY?

As with tomato plants, peppers can also suffer from a virus known as leaf curl. This may be what your pepper plant is experiencing, though it could also be attributed to a lack of water or restricted root growth.

Now that the plants have established themselves, you should be watering the plants 1-2 times a week for 20 minutes or so. When you water for longer periods, the roots go deeper and you get healthier plants.
