So it has started to get cooler here in Southern California, no more 90 degree temperatures. Prior to this, I had some of my new pepper plants loose a couple leaves. They started turning yellow and then fell off the baby plants.
I actually was not getting a lot of growth on my plants and I thought that maybe I had stunted their growth by over watering them. I stopped watering them every day and swapped to an every other day watering cycle to see if they would begin to grow more leaves, but they have not really picked up their growth.
Today I began spraying them with a solution of Epsom salt and water to see if this will perk them up and get them growing through the winter months so that next summer I will have them big enough to start producing lots of peppers.
I have found Pepper Joe ( http://www.pepperjoe.com ) to be a great resource and this is where I have purchased my Habanero, Moruga Scorpion, and Carolina Reaper seeds.
