What’s wrong with my pepper plant?

3 years ago

Why does my cayenne pepper plant have white splotches on its leaves? It’s not powdery like mildew. It’s in a City Picker container with another cayenne beside it (seems to be doing well), 2 banana peppers in front of it (one of which has looked sickly from the very start but the other looks ok), and a Serrano and habanero behind it. I just spotted 2 of these critters on the habanero, but I don’t see any of them on the others. Assuming that’s a aphid and I should treat with a soapy spray, but is there something else going on too?
