Leaves Turning yellow/falling off, my peppers seem to be dying.
This is my first post here and unfortunately it's not bringing good news.
I've recently been trying to grow some jalapenos on my windowsill and initially everything was going really well. They were growing so fast and looked really healthy. About 2-3 weeks ago this is what they looked like:
Then about that time the leaves on the plant to the left in the first picture (the one starting to grow it's first pepper) started turning yellow and falling off. Then the second plant started and then the third. In each instance the yellowing started soon after they started producing their first peppers.
Now they look like this (the box is facing the opposite direction):
Is there anything I can do to save them or would it be better to start over?
They are planted in fresh potting soil - a mix of miracle grow and organic potting soil.
I water then about twice a week, the soil is moist.
Each night tiny mushrooms grow (i didn't plant them) which die as soon as the sun hits them.
There are quite a few very tiny flies about, though they seem more interested in the soil
