My neighbor has given up on her garden for the summer. That's not unusual here, she's looking at the Fall garden rather than maintaining her Spring garden.

 

She asked if I wanted to adopt her Jalapeño.

Why not?

 

It'll be interesting to see if it bounces back from this.

That plant is throwing out some large jalas. Hope you can bring it back! Cheers!

Get a tray to water the pot from the bottom.  At some point, you my need to determine whether the pot is root-bound.  Pick it up and look at the drain holes to check for roots.  Re-potting is a whole different subject.  Some trim roots, put into same pots with new soil.  Some put into bigger pots with new soil.  some just do whacky stuff.  All up to you.  When mine look like that, I re-pot them and the watering from bottom up seems to be the key in N Florida.  Best of luck.

Don't have any recovery advice, but it looks like a good plant. Hope it bounces back.


Note to self: Don't panic till August.

I couldn't help but share a picture of this plant after I saw it.

 

I hope I'm not over-playing the drama too much.

 

It may bounce back fine with alittle watering.  It's already looking much better after a few hours.

I would not worry about it. This plant of mine looks like this about twice a week.

I think it will be just fine. Peppers are pretty resilient and it looks like it would bounce back with a good watering.

Give a good thorough watering. It will come right back. I have revived plants in far worse condition.

Haha!  It bounced back much better than I was expecting!

 

I guess I should have had more faith in the resilience of a Lowe's Jalapeño

Yay! Hmmm... I wonder if Jalapeño resilience is why I've had such good luck with them..?

my local Lowes has plants from BonniePlants. same thing at walmart and home depot. they seem very hardy and most pepper plants droop in the middle of the day when its really hot but they bounce right back when the temp and sun drops. glad to see it bounced back.
