I was given a thai pepper plant by a friend. I've had it for about a month now and everything was going great. New peppers growing and leaves abondant. A couple of days ago, I notice that aphids started invading. So I looked it up online how to take care of this problem. I used the soap/water technique to try to cure the problem. Well the aphids came out more and I just wiped them away. Next morning maybe a couple had survived so I just squished the little buggers. Anyway later that day I notice when looking closely at the plant that leaves had started falling. They were not dead and still very green. I then touched another leaf and if popped right off. I thought w.t.f....so I touch another one and that one fell right off. The leaves are still green and not curling or anything. They look healthy and the peppers are still growing and turning red.
Can someone please help me and tell what is going on? Is my plant dying and if so can I save it? The soil is moist but not puddled. What can this be?
