Why Aren’t My Pepper Plants Growing

Pepper Plants Not Growing

  • Stunting. When plants stop growing it’s called stunting. So, the goal is to find out what caused the stunt so you can correct it.
  • Climate. Start with what is obvious and easy to eliminate. Has the plant been exposed to extreme temperatures?
  • Pests and Disease. Pests are often still on the leaves and can be easily found and identified.
  • How come my pepper plants aren't growing?

    Both too much and too little water can prevent green pepper plants from growing properly. Dry soil results in wilted plants and poor growth. The peppers don't form flower buds and eventually die. Overly wet soil causes the plants to grow poorly, and their leaves may fall off or appear stunted.

    How long does it take a pepper plant to grow?

    Most sweet peppers mature in 60-90 days; hot peppers can take up to 150 days. Keep in mind, however, that the number of days to maturity stated on the seed packet refers to the days after transplanting until the plant produces a full-sized fruit.

    How do you revive pepper plants?

    How deep do I plant pepper plants?

    Pepper Depth

    Set pepper plants in a hole that is twice as wide as the seedling root ball and about 1 inch deeper so a portion of the stem is below soil level. You want the pepper seedling deep enough so the bottom set of leaves on the stem is just above the soil level.
