|Black joints where the stems meet is natural on a pepper plant. Wilted leaves can indicate heat or water stress. Heat stressed plants usually recover overnight and look fine in the mornings; water stressed leaves will remain curled or wilted. When you water, soak the soil so the water goes deeply, then allow the top half inch or inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Good luck with your peppers.
