|I was able to get a beautiful batch of ornamental peppers to grow this year unfortunately with the cold weather it seems the peppers are starting to turn brown (they're orange). Is it a natural dying off of the peppers or are they maybe getting too cold (they are close to a window so they can get sun)?

|Brown spots can be sunburn or they may indicate bacterial rot. It may be time to remove the peppers (at least those that don't look plump and healthy) and discard them. Your pepper plant will produce new flowers and new fruits next spring. Keep the plant healthy with bright light and water the soil when the top half inch begins to dry out. Enjoy your houseplant!
