Rain = Wipe out

I am mostly growing banna pepers and other styles of pepper.In pots They seem to be pretty healther , keep growing spurting flowers and forming some peppers.. However Every time it rains even just a little my plants flop down on thier side. I have to prop them up with small sticks...

What is this from? Never had this happen before

  1. thin/floppy stems too? partly shaded? Too much nitrogen, not enough root food, such as phosphorous...products like miracle grow will do this. Nothing beats a good compost enriched soil with a real npk granular fert
