I have a young Bontempi pepper plant that is kept in the greenhouse, has no sign of pests and is well watered. The main of the plant looks really healthy. But for some reason 3 of the original now large leaves have turned over, their stem has completely twisted so the leaf is facing downwards, the leaves themselves are healthy other than facing donwards. Any ideas why please?

    Do they remain like that even after dark? – Bamboo Jun 10 at 17:04

  • Has it been transplant, repotted, moved to another location, or had a change in lighting recently? – Brōtsyorfuzthrāx Jun 11 at 5:18
  • Is it cold at night, or windy (any time)? – Brōtsyorfuzthrāx Jun 11 at 5:19

I got similar thing on my cowpea after moved outside. I think that they are bitten by slugs or snails, it's real plague and they are going to eat everything. Stems are bitten, but not completly, so they turn over
