Capsicum annuum

This pepper plant is only about a foot tall and has a pepper starting to grow as well as some white flowers and flower buds.

Habitat:

The pepper is in our garden under full sun.

Notes:

This plant was chosen by the 2nd-grade group at John G and these are their questions based on their observations: 1. Why do peppers grow in different colors? 2. What happens if the plant grows too tall? 3. What kind of bees visit pepper flowers?

As plants get taller, they are supposed to send down roots. Roots pull water up from the ground to fill the stem to make the stem stronger. Which plsnt is stronger? A thirsty one or one that's full of water? Try an experiment with some paper straws to see which is stronger. Can a plant get too much water?

Native bees pollinate pepper plants. Can you name one kind of native bee? As the peppers ripen they change colors, so green peppers become orange and then red. What's your favorite color of pepper to eat? Which color is sweeter?
