Where are the Jalapeños?
From the garden...
Well I've been waiting and waiting to see little jalapeños growing in my garden. The plant took off and was the center attraction in one of the beds for a while.
Big and Tall Jalapeno plant.
then it started wilting. I thought that it meant that I need to water
it more and so I did. It came back for a little bit. Then it started
leaning over. Nothing a little support couldn't fix.
I kept waiting for some flowering and some jalapenos, but not a single one showed up.
Today it was wilting and leaning almost all the way over and I took a closer look. At the base of the plant it was getting black.
Black Fungus - Phytophthora causing root rot.
searching about non-flowering pepper plants I found an article talking
about Phytophthora. What I read talks about it being a fungus that
attacks a plant at the roots or the base where it meets the ground. It
causes the plant to act as if it hasn't gotten enough water and it
basically eats the plant up. There isn't anything that can be done to
Alas, I tore it out. I hope it doesn't affect the other plants I have in that bed. I've got 6 zucchini plants and two bell pepper plants. One of the bell pepper plants is flowering.
Bell Pepper flowers.
