I have a few hot peppers in 5gal buckets. They have lots of flower buds covered in black spots. The flowers open and sometimes a pepper forms, but the next day they fall off. Here are some pictures:

What is your weather like ? Hot ? Humid ?

Recently we had a heat wave. I noticed a lot of blossom drops on my peppers. Very few were setting.
