So I haven't been watering the pepper plant at all and it is continuing to get the yellowing, spots, and crumpled leaves. Now my tomato plants that are beside it which where thriving are now showing similar spotting and leave yellowing which is indicative of a mosaic virus. I've grown tomatoes for years and never have seen this until the diseased pepper plant showed up. I'm new to peppers but not tomatoes, something is definitely up.

It might be a wilt…sorry, but I might pull the pepper plants, it may have come with them. No cure.

No miracle grow. I'm from the SW chiles thrive is shitty well draining soil. The less water the hotter. In New Mexico we are fanatical about our chiles. Too much rain late ruins our harvest. We want hot New Mexico Chiles. Peace Dr. Xmas

So an update on the pepper plant... It's still dying and looks like total shit. Cut back watering and leaves are continuing to yellow, get holes, shrivel up and drop off.

Here is the pepper plant beside it. It's being given identical care and is in the same soil.

My tomatoes (which were thriving until the pepper plant showed up) are showing signs of the same disease. I've grown tomatoes for years and never had this issue. The plant that was leaning up against the pepper plant has it the worst and has rotting fruit. The tomato plant beside it is stating to show the same symptoms. Everything I've read on tomatoes says it's a mosaic virus.

Looks just like the tomato spotted wilt virus. From what I read on it over 1000 species in over 85 families, including many vegetables, peanuts and tobacco can be hosts for it. Sounds and looks like a candidate for sure. Unfortunately there is no cure for it and it is very contagious with it being spread by direct contact or pest/insect vectors. It will eventually kill the infected plants.

Sadly I will have to cull my pepper plant and at least one of the tomatoes. The other tomato plant is holding out a bit and is still producing fruit so I'll give it a chance. Hopefully my healthy pepper plant won't get sick too.

Thanks for the info Betterhaff.
