Hello all, I've only posted to the forum a few times (last year) and have returned to find out if I could get help in identifying the issues affecting my bhut jolokias. I was previously growing 7 plants in one aerogarden (waaay too many) so I thinned it out to 3 in one unit and 2 in another. The unit with 2 is here at work, serving as a pleasant distraction from the IT world. Initial growth is green, healthy. Top/old growth ends up slightly yellow, leaves curling upward. Some leaves seem slightly patchy. Friends at a hydroponic store said the ppm could be too high, causing nutrient lockout, so I emptied the reservoir and refilled it, making sure the ppm was below 800. I've seen conflicting tables stating target ppm for hot peppers should be over 1000, while others say 500-600.
