I am gardening for the first time and I am growning pepper plants in pots. The leaves have large holes in them without any discoloration? What can I do about this?

While I cannot say for certain what it is exactly, it is likely slugs. They only come out at night, so it is hard to spot them. This article will help:

If you do not feel it is due to slugs, then I would recommend treating the plants with neem oil. This is a safe and effective pesticide. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
