Hi guys,

Chili plant seemed completely healthy last night and all the leaves dropped overnight. There were several fruit flies. We got rid of most of them.

I believe it's due to overwatering. I watered her 3 days ago thoroughly, and she seemed a little dry yesterday so I watered a little. I always use bottled water and warm it up but I did not warm the water last night. Clearly I did all the wrong things. D'Oh!

It also snowed last night and got really chilly and we have not had proper sunlight in the last 3 days either. I don't know if that is one of the issues as well.

Brought her home on 24th April and have not fertilized her yet. I was planning to fertilize her today but that's not happening. Should I add some eggshell powder?

What can I do at this point to make her healthy again?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thank you
