Answer: Peppers are warm-season plants that thrive in full sunshine and warm summer temperatures. It's important to keep pots and containers of plants well watered, but because we water so frequently, nutrients are lost before the roots can use them. Try watering only when the top of the soil has dried out, and fertilize about every three weeks with a diluted liquid fertilizer. This will provide an almost constant supply of nutrients to the plant's roots. Different fertilizer products have different concentrations and different formulas, so read and follow the label directions. Your peppers should perk up in no time at all!
