Leaf curling problem and more -- Help

04 February 2017 - 12:49 PM

My plants have had a great start this year and for the most part are doing well. I have a big issue with Aphids I am fighting with Insecticidal Soap but have some new problems. The leaves are becoming extremely 'bumpy' and curling down. Most of the new top leaves coming out turn brown and die. I did over fert a bit initially but have stopped that. I'm in a heated sunroom in the PNW with rain outside so humidity is high inside 70% or so and temps from 55 low to 75 high.


You can see those Devil Aphids in the pics ..  :mad: I have to deal with them almost daily .. 


Plants are under a 600watt HPS about 24'' above. 13 hours a day. The yellow in the pics on the leaves is the HPS light, they are for the most part a beautiful green.


Thanks! appreciate any ideas you have.

This year I added insulation, heat, and a 600 watt HPS light to my Sunroom/Greenhouse. Expecting much better results this year. I'm in Tacoma WA so we get pretty chilly at night, all year round, so this will really help. In fact it was 18 deg this morning.

So far I have Peach Ghost, Fatalii Red, Yellow & Chocolate, Star of Turkey, Chocolate Bhutlah, Bahamian Goat, Red Savina Hab, White Naga, Gator Jigsaw & Devils Tongue started. I also have a bunch of other seeds and will be starting another round soon (hopefully this weekend).

My original planting was back on Dec 5th, so it's going nicely so far.

Hi Folks! Been growing hot peppers for about 3 years but no real success until last year .. and it was great. Have bags and bags of peppers in the freezer and make hot sauce, salsa and powder regularly.

This year should be even better. I built a Sunroom/Greenhouse last year and have it heated now and have an HPS light on the way. Started my seeds Dec 2nd and am already transplanting many to 3" pots.

Love all the great info and people on this site, thanks!
