black powdery stuff on my leaves
this stuff is all over the leaves of many of my plants, but only on the tops of the leaves (except for the goofy leaves that are upside down). if you wipe it it comes off. I'm inclined to think it's from the pollution in the air (tampa is dirty), since my car gets dirty really fast here, even though I'm barely using it (do most my commuting via bike). it's on non pepper plants too, but not as bad. my gut instinct is that it's no big deal, but my gut instinct seems to be wrong a lot, so I'm doing the smart thing and asking about it here. it's on the pods too, so I always wash them really good with soap and water before I use them.
(for the record I took a pic of the worst looking leaves I could find, most of it isn't nearly that bad)
