Earthtainer Pepper Plants Look Sick & Eggplant leaves eaten
I am in need of help. My pepper plants are at the end of the line for my automatic watering system and were not getting enough water in the first 2 weeks of planting. (I just thought they were growing slowly.) I lifted the pipe thing up and now they are getting water but they also have gotten blackened leaves in the last day or two and the new leaves are curly looking. I have also sprayed them with dish detergent mixture because there were little brownish red bugs on the new leaves. One pepper plant is shedding it's leaves. I think that plant has been in trouble since I planted it. I had squirrels dig up the plants in the first week and I had to replant them. I'm not sure what to do next. Is it too late for these peppers?
The new leaves on my eggplant have been chewed up just in the last day. I sprayed them with the detergent mixture also. Is that good enough or should I buy something professional?
