I'm curious as to why a couple of my peppers plants have more yellowish leaves and some look really green. They were started from seed at the same time, then transplanted outside the same day and are in the same soil. What could be causing this? I did plant two different kinds of peppers and have forgotten which are which kind, not sure if that has any impact.

Leaves on peppers will turn yellow when the plants are under or over watered, but under-watered would also result in wilting plants. They will also turn yellow if they lack sufficient fertilizer but usually the older leaves are affected first.

So look into over-watering.
