Red Thai Dragon chilli

Chilli Pepper    Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa

What feeding program can I use to to nourish my plant as well as prevent the yellow leaf drop. We have had extreme variations in weather patterns this year and go from days of non stop rain to scorching heat. I only have one of the hottest Thai dragon chille bush, don't want to lose it.
