Why is one of my serano pepper plants is turning yellow at the top, both leaves and fruit?
Is it over watering? I find young pepper plants are much more susceptible to water and cold than tomatoes are.
It could well be too much water and ground not draining properly. Trim off the top part of the plant and water infrequently. Good luck.
If the leaf is yellow but still has green veins, it can be an indication of overwatering. To rebalance growing conditions you can also try scratching in a little kelp meal around the plant, as well as not watering so often.
Yes! Probably too much water.
