I'm trying to keep my Carolina Reaper pepper plants alive. We've had lots of rain, and there is good drainage at the bottom of the planters. I've put down slug plugs and spray them with insect oil. They get fish emulsion about every 3 weeks and on an off week I'll do some dilluted humic acid and kelp on the leaves. There are a lot of branches that have had the leaves chewed off and have not been able to track down the culprit yet. Any ideas? Is located in central Texas. I know we have raccoons on the deck sometimes, but I was having this issue even with it screened in.
They had been growing like crazy and one day, as soon as it started to warm up (when peppers are supposed to be happiest) they stopped and started falling apart.
Edit: I use this on them- Bonide All-Season Spray
EDIT: Accepted answer got me straightened out. They're all growing again with good healthy growth.
I'll note that it is possible that it was a virus.
