Little update, most plants are between 3 to 4 foot high, the jalapenos are huge! The only problem I've had is that im thinking that my seeds have been mixed up, somehow I might end up with 10 Hungarian wax plants instead of six, as two of my plants that were supposed to be habaneros but atleast two of them appear to be the wax chillies, so fingers crossed the last two I've got are what they say on the tin... Bit annoyed, going to email the website I bought the seeds from cause I know 100% that I've not made a mistake planting them, straight from the packet, sown and labelled straight away bit gutted, almost spoilt my season fingers crossed these naga and 7pot habs are real.

Little bit of an update; Im pleased to say that my plants have now all pulled round within the last few weeks, I did try a few things like putting ladybugs on my plants and all sorts, altered the feed and watering but to be honest when I used some pesticide on them theyve all pulled round. From what I think I had an aphid infestation starting due to the way the leaves were turning I used bayer & bayer provado on them and here's the results =)

Chilli plant problems

Hi there, thanks for the reply Philippa. I thought that going to a large pot from smaller pots was best, they werent exactly root bound but they did have a nice structure when I replanted them, I hadnt realised it was a negative to go large straight away and I was thinking that I have 6 or 7 months for them to grow anyway now, and the odd Hab is thriving in a large pot... They were all sown in a heated propagator and then replanted soon after the seed leafs appeared in to 2 inch pots, they sat on my window sill in the kitchen for a month or so until 4 true leaves had appeared on each plant then I took them down to my garden and put them in my green house then replanted them about a week later after theyd acclimatised a bit, and that was about 3 weeks ago. This is just something that has appeared to have started to happen within the last few days, like say, a week if that. I have been checking all the plants for the normal nastys, aphids etc and they all seem in perfect condition in that respect no infestations at all and prior to this they all seemed to be growing pretty well at a steady and noticeable pace.

 Hi, Im having a problem I think and Im not sure whats exactly happening here, so any help from you fellow gardeners will be greatly appreciated! Recently this week all my plants are starting to exhibit this same thing, I dont think its over watering cause theyve only been watered once since being repotted, the only thing that I have done that I can think of that is maybe a cause is using some fert that I made out of dead weed leafs, but Ive only done this the one time. Any help?

Sounds like we have basically the same kind of enviroment, maybe it is down to overwatering on my behalf, Ive just been watching them and the soil their planted in seems to get really dry hence the twice a day watering... Ive picked off all the ones that have spilt and will try just giving them one water now at the end of the day when the sun starts to set, hopefully it will solve the problem.

Food for thought, thanks, will wirte back and let you know how it turns out

Thanks for the replies, its not down to erratic watering though I dont think, I have a very rigid schedule for them, I water them twice daily at the same times every day as Im down at my allotments all day long, the temps in the greenhouse do reach 30-40 degrees C though throughout the day, I was thinking it was a dehydration issue or sorts. Last year I had them split vertically which I did put down to erratic watering

@Patricia My tom plants are all Money Makers as well, strange...

Im pleased the cracks on my Jalepenos are natural though, thanks for confiraming this!  I have around 50 decent sized ones on one plant.

Thanks for the advice, happy gardening folks
