Here with another noob question. As the title says, my bonnets which include MOA, Foodarama, Freeport Orange and TFM and the CARDI yellow scorpions are suffering in the sun and heat here in VA. Right now it's only in the low 80's but supposed to get to near 90 by 5pm. By suffering or struggling I mean that they droop so bad during the bright direct sun that they look like they are almost dead. I can move them to a shady area and within 20 minutes or so they perk back up. They are in 5 gallon grow bags. I checked the soil and it is still moist from getting water yesterday so that's not an issue.
I have Datil's, Shishimi's, Fushimi's, Aji Mango, a tabasco and a sugar rush peach that don't droop at all.
I am pretty sure that Trinidad and Jamaica are much hotter than here so any ideas what is going on?
I'll try to get pic's tomorrow if you all think that would help. I have already moved them to the shade for now.
