Rain and peppers, too much?
Howdy, in the past 5 days we've gotten about 2-3 inches of rain with more on the way for the forecastable future. My plants are in containers sitting in a mixture of about 1/3rd perlite and 2/3 potting mix. We had a solid 10 days of rain in June and they all survived that deluge quite nicely.
My question is: What do I need to look out for during the damp time? Mold, mildew, leaf color, etc... And what are the remedies? This year my plants are doing better than ever before and I really don't want to lose them.
I can put an "umbrella" over them if needed, but that will take some time to assemble. Think it's needed? We have rain predicted through next Tuesday. I think there might be one dry day in there too.
