What is wrong with my pepper plants...Pictures inside

Post  kmarie on 6/19/2013, 6:21 pm

Can anyone tell me why the leaves on my pepper plants are turning yellowish and developing these spots on them? It seems like it is happening more towards the bottom. Here are some pictures that I took so hopefully that will help:

Also, I noticed that the stalk (or whatever it is technically called) has black spots on it. Is that normal?

I have a green pepper plant that seems to be doing the best, but it looks like it is starting to get the same way as the others. Can anyone help me figure out what is going on and if there is anything that I can do. Thanks!

The dark coloring at joints is normal.... Why are the plants all wet? Did it just rain? If you are watering and giving the plant a shower I suggest just watering the growing mix.


I suggest removing all the affected leaves. The plant will put out new healthy growth.

Would I just snip the leaves off with a pair of scissors then? There would be quite a few that I would need to remove. I have been watering with my watering can, just over the plants. I guess that is not a good idea. I will start watering at the base. Do you think this is why the leaves look like this? Thanks for the advice!

Yes a scissors or garden snips. Just clip off the leaf stem near the main stem. I am confident that giving your plants a shower is contributing to their condition. I myself use a wand attachment on a hose. Just take off the worst leaves, that will make it look so much better.

Looks like it might be bacterial leaf spot, but you would have to contact your extension to be sure. I agree with camprn's advice. Definitely keep the foliage dry. I also like to put a mulch under the plants to keep soil pathogens from splashing up on the leaves, and it also helps keep the MM consistently moist, which peppers like. When you trim off the affected leaves, dispose of them in the trash and then disinfect your scissors.
