    The temperature in the room is always between 19c to 22c. Make sure the top layer of the soil somewhat drys out, this will prevent mold and diseases. And the most important make sure the have adequate sunlight and humidity. Normal house humidity is 50% which is adequate for both humans and peppers, if lower just spray it with water once a day. This is how I overwinter my peppers. They take turns under the lamp of life https://imgur.com/gallery/qg4cFBh

    Do you use fertilizer? The lack of calcium and nitrogen may be the cause of dying leaves, I use regular tomato fertilizer on my bell pepper as I want them to flower. I also had an ornament pepper a few years ago, It had the same symptoms as yours, the cause was it root-bound, lack of good drainage and fertilizer.

    Hello everyone, Autumn lasts just one month where I live, as I am so far north.These are first year pepper plants I grew from seed they are kept under a (32 Watt UV LED). I do not know what variety of sweet pepper this is, but it was not very sweet. I am also growing some garlic that germinated the basement. Is anyone else doing something similar?

    It's winter in Canada, and I am currently overwintering some pepper plants. I will be pruning them, cleaning the UV lamp and keep trying to kill the aphids.
