Hi all!

 

Cant say, that my first attempt of growing peppers was very successful, but still I am hoping to get some fruits before the end of season(btw when does it end?).

I accidentally burnt roots of half of my plants recently by overfertilizing(i suppose), they got completely dead after that. But some survived and now even have little fruits.

 

So my question is how long can i keep them outside with the temperature of about 60-80F? I am little worried, because the leaves of some fruited plants are going yellow.

This is Brazilian Starfish. No overwatering, Everything was going well for weeks, but 3-4 days ago this began.

The similar situation with the Peach BJ:

I am not sure its Fungus or relatively cold weather. Hope you can help me out with this.

 

Also, maybe you know, what does cause this:

So, can I leave the peppers outside or should I bring them indoors and give them grow lights in order to let the fruits get ripe?

 

Thanks a lot.

Second to the last pic looks like a wilt disease, possibly verticillium or fusarium. Or you fried all the roots with the ferts.

What soil do you use?
What ferts do you use?

Your temps are good 60-80F is fine for peppers.

Here, where I live we don't have much choice of quality soil or fertilizer. The soil I use is mostly garden soil, which looks more like a dirt than a soil + some peat + some commercial soil(I should've bought more of that). I know I had to add some sand for drainage, but will fix that for next season.
Fertilizer is local as well. its name will give you nothing. Also I use Epsom salt solution on leaves every 2 weeks. My mistake was, that I added nitrogen/sulfur(90/10) granules onto the soil and watered them after I fertilized them 2-3 days earlier. I was absent for about 3 days after that, when I got back half of my plants were dying. I count last two photos on that event, But I haven't given any ferts to first two plants for quite a long time already and those yellow edges seem strange... :/ I still think its a fungus or a verticillium, as you said. I will try to find some solution for that disease.

Thank you.

Wilt diseases cannot be cured and it remains in the soil for quite some time. I believe all off your problems are nutrient/soil related. Did you make your own soil with different ingredients? If I had to guess your ph is way out of whack in your soil limiting nutrient uptake.

I agree - your problem is with all the fertilizer.  Sounds like *way* too much.  Peppers don't need all that much fertilizer when growing in largely natural soil.

 

You may have made changes to make things better, but the leaves that are already damaged and discolored won't improve.  Look at new growth for any change. The big leaves naturally accumulate phyical damage at they get older, but by now there should be plenty of younger leaves so they don't matter, but I see little new growth on your plants. 

 

As for when the season is over, it ends at the first freeze.

I had some issues with fertilizer as well and learned it's way easier to overfertilize than under.  Lesson learned for me.

 

In the first pic, I don't think the yellowing leaves are much of a problem.  I have a few here and there as well and asked about it on the forum.  Most responses were that it was just what happens to leaves in the fall season :)

 

When I was concerned I might not get any peppers someone kindly sent me some from there crop.  PM me your address and if you don't get any on your plants, at least you won't have a shortage of ghosts and savinas.

Thanks a lot ALL!

 

Yep, I live in Country of Georgia, not in States :)

 

Lessons learned. Waiting for Yellow Devil's Tongue and Br. Starfish. Hope to harvest by the end of the month to heat up cold rainy days. Others have only flowers, not sure they will make it until cold days.

 

Thanks again!
