Q.Why Is My Rey Pakal Hot Pepper Plant Wilting?

Anonymous added on June 15, 2021 | Answered

I bought a Rey Pakel hot pepper plant from a garden center not too long ago. Within a day the plant’s leaves began to wilt. When bought, I transferred the plant into a bigger pot and mixed it with my own potting soil mix and fertilizer tablets. It would be very much appreciated if you can give me some tips on how to revive this plant. Thanks!

When repotting a plant, only go up one or two sizes. The more soil that is in the pot, the easier it is to overwater. If your pot is much bigger than the nursery pot, I suggest scaling down. Other than that, it is probably just the stress of repotting. It should perk up in a few days.
