Over-Wintering Ghost Pepper
I have a ghost pepper that I'm trying to overwinter. It was holding up better at first, but now I'm starting to worry. I potted it up into a big tug tub, gave it a bit of fertilizer, and try to keep the soil damp, but not soaked. I water maybe 1-2 times a week, just enough to make sure the soil doesn't get dry. It's in an area of the garage I have enclosed as a kind of greenhouse, with space heaters keeping the temps around 70-80 degrees. It gets light from about 8am to 10pm. The leaves are starting to get dry and whither at the ends, and many are falling off. I expected it to drop the remaining flowers when I brought it in, and maybe a few leaves, but now it's shedding like it's a tree in fall! Am I not watering enough? Does it need more fertilizer? I really want to keep this plant going!
