Hi have a chili plant in my garden and i realized that it is not growing for the past several week. I first thought it has to do with the soil. But recently i found out that the plant is suffering from a pest or yeast infection which of that im not sure of. Underneath each leaf, there was a small pollen sticking on it causing the leaves to wilt due to its weight. Please enlighten me on what is causing the problem and how to i get rid of it so my plants can recover. Thank you in advance :)

Welcome! to NGA

It looks like aphids. Wash the plant with soapy water and rinse well. Watch for re-infestations.

Yup, aphids. A lot of them. Rinse each day to get rid of them.
