I planted several pepper plants (Sweet Costa Rican Hybrid, Yellow Honeycrisp, Red Cal Wonder, and Jalapenos). In the past 2-3 days the leaves began to curl and some of the new growth has a wrinkled appearance. Some of the plants are in a raised bed and some in 5 gallon buckets with holes in the bottom for drainage. They were all transplanted outside about 2 weeks ago. The temperature the past 2 nights have dipped down to the mid-40s. I am leaning toward over-watering, but just wanted to see what some of you think. I have them on a drip irrigation with 1/4 inch soaker hose and have been watering every 2 days for about 10 minutes. Thank you in advance for the help.
