I need some diagnoses, I'm a total n00b at this. I'm thinking too much water is probably at the root of my troubles, but I defer to the experts. Everybody said my jalapeno MG potting soil was too wet, so I didn't water this one for 5 days and this started happening. I know it looks wet again, I gave it a little water to see if that would help - sunburn or too much fertilizer? I barely sprinkled a few MG pellets around it:
This is my Arbol, at least I think that's what it is. It was given to me last fall, fully loaded down with peppers. I kept it alive over the winter, then put it in a bigger pot about a month or so back. It seems pretty healthy, and is throwing out a lot of peppers, but there's some kind of rash on the leaves that I'm wondering about:
I don't remember what these are, things got a little mixed up. Could be cayenne, or tabasco or jalapeno, or even something else. I guess I'll know if it starts throwing peppers. They leaves are yellowish and curled up ever since I put them in the big bucket. Growing really slow. Too much water again? Don't they droop when you overwater? I have a water pH test kit coming today...
Then this morning I saw aphids for the first time! I gave them a little shot of homemade dish soap solution, but I washed it off after a few minutes, because I almost killed my big jalapeno with it a while back. Then a few hours later they were back, so I blended up some of my little arbol peppers and gave them a blast of that, see how they like it.
