1st grow ever

Thanks for the advise and knowledge given. Here is what I have going. The coleus is a rescue from under some Cana.

Buena mulata
Scropion

Anything noticeable? Please let me know.

Good day.

Just noticed this yesterday and sprayed with neem. Scorpion pepper. It’s on 90% of the leaves. No other plants have it.

Buena mulata has flowers and peppers. Scorpions are growing good. Finally got some reapers started. The coleus thanks me for saving it.

Any advice on indoor pepper growing. My lights aren’t the best but my son is really happy about the purple peppers.

Looking good! They will want to have some larger pots the longer you plan on keeping them. You can get plastic grow bags for super cheap from any indoor garden store.

Yeah. I plan on putting most outside in grow bags and keep a few over the next winter. I don’t have the space or light to put them all in bags now.

Buena mulata are all fruiting and left some in smaller pots. Jalapeño are starting to flower and the scorpion and 7 pot are right there.

Propagated the coleus and that went well. 1 water and 1 soil.

Getting these ready to go outside. I left out in the garage for a few hours? Is this sunburn or needs nitrogen?

It's not nitrogen deficiency. It looks a bit like what happens when you put a developed plant in dark and it continues growing without light, but there's also some indications of burning or dehydration in the misshapen leaves and damaged leaf margins.

How long of a time period and under what conditions did this develop? Did the new growth grow normal, then quickly change to this appearance or did it grow in like this over a longer period of time? If it happened quickly, my best guess would be the plant went from relatively weak lighting into more intense light or sunlight, which damaged and bleached out the weaker new growth.

That makes sense. It was super windy so I kept the door shut for 2 days. So, all the above what you mentioned. I do not have a grow light in the garage. The plants went from grow light to hardening off to no light for 2 days, then back to 1/2 day of full sun.

Made potting mix. 1/2 peat moss. 1/4 top soil, 1/4 cow compost. Bone meal and perlite. Has been outside and no frost but dipping into 40’s. From pic any suggestions. Thanks. It’s reaper.

It's a good looking plant, but it looks burned. If that happened after going outside, probably from the sun being harsher than the indoor lights. If it happened before it went outside, maybe the cow compost wasn't fully composted. The leaf roll causes me to lean toward shock from the change in conditions.
 
I think all is going well. It’s been windy and rainy since I put them outside. They seem stalled but getting new growth in. A few bugs and ants.

That looks good to me. I use Foxfarm Grow Big liquid fertilizer early then switch to Tiger Bloom after one dose of Grow Big in garden. Every 14 days is good and the plants seem to love it. Some of the peppers in my greenhouse are already a foot to foot 1/2 tall and HUGE leaves. Whatever you are doing is working. Keep it up! My first time growing he superhots - I overwatered. They really don't need much and you will learn to read the plant. It will tell you when it needs something... I know, I'm crazy :dance:
 
They stalled when I first put them in the ground. Then leaves fell off and new leaves growing. Different from the original ones. They didn’t branch out much, then started flowing. All of them are producing fruit. The plants didn’t grow as big as I wanted. Any advice. I plan on overwintering select few
