Hi Folks -
I'm in Atlanta and live in an apartment. I have some plants growing
on my back deck, among them, 3 cherry tomato plants, a regular tomato
plant, one green pepper and one cayenne pepper plant.
I've noticed that anytime a fresh cayenne or green pepper bud sprout
and start to form a pepper, within a week, the bud will drop off into
the soil and look as if it has been cut cleanly off about a
cenitemeter back from the bud. I'm really at a loss to figure out
what is causing it. I looked very closely at both plants and don't
notice any bugs. The temperature often gets up to 90-100 degrees F.
I don't suppose this could be causing it?
I was out checking the plants today and both have fresh buds starting
to form. I'd like to 'save' these if I can somehow. Anybody know
what could be going on?
