have fallen off the plants. the leaves are completely intact. nothing looks like it is eating it away and in includes the stem and all. i forgot to take pictures. the leaves themselves are very greeen and healthy looking and the seem to come from the bottom of the pepper plant. the plant itself is very green and healthy looking.

was wondering if anyone else has grown this pepper and if you re experiencing the same thing.

thanks

I do believe the leaves you are talking about are the first two on the bottomof the plant. They fall off of most plants you grow. They have something to do with germination. The leaves that remain are called true leaves. Please feel free to correct me pepperheads . If I am wrong.

i have another queston about the peppers. in the past i have left all the flowers on my plants before i planted them outside for good. i have been told that many people remove this flowers until they are planted outside. what is the reason for this. i always leavethem on and i see no difference in the plant once i put it outside. is there something i should know?? thanks

I pick the flowers off my tomatoes before they're planted out (because Carolyn says to), but I leave any flowers or buds on my peppers... it doesn't seem to do them any harm.

If it's only the two lowest leaves that are falling off, then no problem, that's just the cotyledons or "nurse leaves" naturally dropping now that their job is done. If the plant is losing more leaves, then I don't know... leaves aren't turning yellow, plant isn't getting too much water?

My Bhut Jolokias were fine under grow lights, seemed fine for 2 weeks outdoors in shade, then suddenly lost all leaves, looking like sunburn, mind you still in shade, then came back with a vengeance and are now thriving. I think the soil temp stunted them.
