Peppers need warm soil, warm temperatures (50 to 90 degrees), and full sun to grow their best. They are heavy feeders and need a rich soil along with an even supply of moisture. Fruiting will stop or slow if the temperatures vary too far from between 70 at night and about 80 in the daytime. Peppers also have a long lead time before they begin to flower, so it may be normal.
