#1547411 Leaf issues with Habaneros and Scotch Bonnets

Posted by Chorizo857_62J on 21 April 2018 - 01:22 PM

Soil was right out of the bag (Miracle grow).  Prior soil may be an issue.  Have treated with fungicide, and isolated, and only one was beyond saving.  The others have begun to come back, with drying out and transplanting.  Hoping for continued success.

I see tiny white hard pin sized bumps....that is edema from water logged roots.

Soil should dry out every 3 or 4 days before watering.

Ease up on watering....do not apply any ferts since you just transplanted and the soil has enough goodies in it already.

Plants from home depot should already be hardened off but you could keep them shaded a couple weeks to make sure.


Sprinkle a Tbls of Epsom salt to the top of each pot....don't mix it in. Just let it naturally work it's way in as you water.

Sun scald or sunburn may have happened as well.
Any pics of the whole plants in question?

Good luck :cheers:

 

All the impacted leaves have been removed or fallen off, and new growth looks better.  Yesterday was "graduation day", whereas I transplanted everything into larger pots, with new potting soil.  the previous mixture was retaining too much water.  Avoiding the frog-stranger rain we're supposed to have this afternoon, I think we will be OK.

Did they display slow stunted growth? Any herbicides being sprayed nearby? 2-4,D?

I have smoked Fresno chilis with great success, but used them in a sauce.  I recently smoked some orange Habaneros, dried them, and made a powder, which is KILLER. Love the smoked taste.

So far, most of the older infected leaves have yellowed and fallen off.  I am keeping them out of the rain expected Sunday, just keeping the roots moist.  new growth looks to be healthier, but I did have some that just runted off.

Well, it is Florida.  Maybe shade them for the rest of the afternoon, and just give thme morning sun to acclimate.  Temps went from the 50's-60's to the mid 80's in two days, and it won't get cooler from here on.  Plus the humidity will pick up.

Mike,

 

Gonna sound weird, but in April here, there are usually some good sales on corned beef briskets that were not sold in March for St. Patrick's season (pennies on the dollar). Just on a whim last year, I bought a few, rubbed one down and smoked it as an experiment. Took it to work and it evaporated something quick... Not too shabby! Still get requests to do another.... Different but oh so delightful!

I did this exact thing this weekend.  soaked the brisket in cold water for an hour to help remove the brine, but essentially already seasoned.  A little paprika and turbinado sugar, and good to go.  Disappeared quickly between me and dog (moose and squirrel).

 

Gonna stock up.

squirrels, squirrels everywhere!!  Other than offensive driving and random target practice, they serve no purpose, other than to dig up my plants.

I picked up one last year, and it is wonderful.  5 tray Ronco.  Made a smoked habanero powder this weekend, in addition to other excesses.  Does tend to gas the entire house in the process.

With the wife out of town, it was a perfect weekend to fire up the smoker grill.  Corned Beef Brisket, St. Louis spare ribs, sweet corn, and 1 pound of orange habaneros.  Made a nice habanero dry powder.
