Q.Why Do My Red Bell Pepper Baby Plants Wilt In The Sun After A Few Minutes?

Zone 96094 | Anonymous added on April 18, 2022 | Answered

They are fine over night and the first few minutes outside, then they wilt in about 70 degree weather. They are pure green and look good til then. I have them in pots/buckets that I bring in and out each day. Sometimes they do better then other days and bounce back easily. I read they are good in full sun. I live in far northern California and its very low humidity and so I water when it needs it, sometimes twice a week and I do less water then overwater. Any ideas of why they wilt so fast in only warm weather, as it is only april. Thank you.

They look like they need more water. They are very small yet and may need water every day. I wouldn't saturate the whole pot, though, if they are in large containers.
