I have about 8 pepper plants, mostly bell but 2 sweet banana. They are constantly dropping leaves. The plants are all a nice green. I don't see any bugs on them and they are budding and I have a small banana pepper on one of the plants. I have them in a 24x36x8" concrete mixing tub with pea gravel. They have a bell syphon in the bed. I have 2 tomato plants in the same tub and they are growing and I have a few tomatoes on them already. I have a seperate jalapino plant that I started later in a different location a constant flow pot and the plant has almost doubled in size already.
