issue What is the problem with these Jalapeno plants (leaf curl)


I started some Jalapeno plants in coconut coir and then transplanted them to soil when they were about 4 inches or so. I have noticed that some of these plants are having leaf curl issue. I did supplement calcium and it is only some of the plants that are displaying this issue. I also sprayed an insecticide recently. Could anyone guide me on what this issue is. Thanks.

The newer leaves tell me you have broad mites.

You can verify by getting a handheld microscope and looking under the leaves - especially the long, thin one in the second picture.

Broad mites are a pain to deal with, but neem oil sprayed twice a week should help.

Good luck!
