    Here's a quick video of my plants. I have several plants that are suffering from twisted leaves. It seems I experience this every year. I'm still not sure what causes it. If you know, please respond in the comments. Thanks for looking.

I do not have an answer. I noticed a bag of mushroom compost near one of the plants. Mushroom compost is very high in salt I believe, maybe that could play a roll in it?

Looks like some of the plants were fairly young, mushroom compost is pretty strong from what I remember, maybe too much for the little guy.

I am at work so unable to hear any words because it is extremely loud in here. If that was mentioned I would like to say, The big plant looks great!

    I've used mushroom compost for about 2 years now. I add 1-2 cups to each pot, depending on the size of the pot. It's not that much considering how big the pots are, but stranger things have happened.  I'll keep that in mind when re-potting small plants. Thanks for the info.

If that amount is all you are using I doubt it is the problem, seeing nobody had replied I figured it was a start to the pyramid of advice. Once you did the problem be sure to let us know!

I'm in florida, so it might be different for you, but one suggestion is to not jump from solo cups to bigger pots. If it's not an issue, put them into 1gal containers so that there's not a lot of excess moisture. Peppers in my experience spread their roots in search for water when the soil gets close to bone dry, which doesn't happen on the outer space of larger pots and smaller plants. unless it's hot out. 

Re the wrinkling, it could be thrips and i think thrips is a virus? Is there any silk pulling the leaves together? Could be little worms making homes and moving on. Either that or did you just put them outside recently from being inside? I've noticed that can cause wrinkly leaves as well

     I typically re-pot 3 to 4 times before pot out. I use small cups to germinate, then pot up as they grow. They've been outside for about 6 weeks. I haven't noticed any silk around the plants. I'm not sure what the cause is, but as I stated earlier, it seems this happens every year. I'm not really concerned at this point. I'll just keep a close eye on them. I did treat for aphids today, even though I haven't seen very many.

 

     Thanks,
