Summer Gardening Problem – Brown leaf tip

Hello Gardeners,

It’s summer and my pepper plant started showing brown tips on some leaves. So I did some research and discuss with other gardeners to handle this situation.

Problem :

Pepper leaves with brown tips

Brown tips indicates that plant is stressed and not getting enough water.  There are two reason

  • Roots are not able to reach out for water
  • Soil is unable to hold the water
  • root damaged , in case soil is compacted around the plant
  • over fertilized

To handle this situation I did following

  • Shifted plant to large container
  • Water twice for two days and then shifted to timely routine to water the plant
  • Added the organic matter for soil improvement

If you have over fertilized then water more often so that excess salts get washed away but be careful for damping off .

Hope this little knowledge help you in your gardening. Please share which plants in your garden is getting brown tips and how you in your region work to prevent.

Happy Gardening!
