Massive Leaf Drop
So we have been in "summer" here where I am, which means, tons of sun and very very little rain... however, temps don't really go above 80. My best plant was on fire, doing great, watering every 3 days, etc. However, I had to go away for 10 days and when I came back, 30-40% of the leaves had fallen.
Well, I suspect that the person who was supposed to come water didn't come as often as they said they would and this created problems. After 3 days in this sun, the leaves would fall and I think that they fell, the plant never got water and then the plant got another day or 2 or 3 of the hot sun, without water and on the fallen leaves. Is this a possibility or do you think the roots are that stressed? Seems odd that it was super healthy before I left and then this... The other thing I noticed is the peppers sorted of stopped growing.
My question is, if thats the case, anyway to revive the plant and get the peppers to continue growing? I did water it of course and add ferts (it was due anyway).
Thanks in advance. Here are some pics:
