Pepper leaf problems - curling, yellow and eaten

Post  sandij on 6/3/2012, 4:37 pm

The yellow leaves have been on this plant from the beginning and just seem to be getting worse.



The curling just stared on the large pepper plant and I just noticed it on the plant next to is. Think maybe overwatering?



And I am most certain the last one - eaten was a hornworm eating my pepper leaves while I was away for 4 days. I have used Thurmicide, as suggested by the local nursery.



And, I have been able to post one photo successfully. The rest are showing up as links. Anyone have a link to show what I'm doing wrong?

Hooray, you posted photos! Wink Wink
The yellowing is a condition called chlorosis, it MAY indicate iron deficiency. Do some research on the web.

The rolling leaves, does this happen during specific hours during the day?

Those pepper plants will come back and go gangbusters! Very Happy

The rolling is all of the time. I looked this morning and they were still rolled up.

The one with yellow is in with the rolling pepper plant as well as about 4 others. Not sure why it is the only one that turned yellow. But come to think of it, he was part of a 6-pack and was the only one that was yellow and still is. Hmmmm.

Thanks for the reassurance that my peppers will come back. My tomatoes are looking much better, after I started to hand water them as opposed to putting them on the drip system.

Come to think of it, they rolled leaves weren't as rolled this morning and I also took that planter off of the drip system.
