Q. Hot pepper plants
Dear Peter: I would gradually ease the plants back out in the sun as they are full sun plants. The webbing you see has me a little worried as it might be spider mites. Hose off the plants with a hose, hitting the undersides of the leaves. Repeat the hosing every three days until you don't see the webbing. I am not sure you have mites, but it is suspicious and the hosing will do no harm! Also, I am not sure they would cause flower drop anyway, but they will weaken the plant and cause the foliage to yellow and drop off. If the webbing continues, you could spray with ultrafine oil (completely non toxic to us, will not affect the peppers when they appear and is available in most garden centers) and will end the mite issue. Do no over water the plants and leave in full sun (after they have been reacclimated to the sun) . You should have peppers!!
