Container pepper plants
I have several pepper plants I am growing and they are doing good. I was watering them once a day to once every two days which I guess was to much because leaves and pods were dropping. So when this started to happen I got a moisture meter to help me determine when my plants need to be watered. I have not watered them for around 7 days because the meter is still telling me that there is moisture in the pot. My question is this. Is my meter wrong and the plants need to be watered? Or when plants are over watered does it take them longer to dry out? I have read container plants need to be watered at least once or twice a week.
