What's wrong with my pepper plants? Leaves turning white

Temperatures generated by sun through glass are much higher than from a shower of rain outside

Good to 'see' you Italophile

Hostafan, that's what I was wondering, but Simon says he potted them up on Saturday - if the compost was fresh MPC or similar it should have plenty of nutrients in it (as long as it wasn't seed compost).

It does sound a little cool at night - I think they like to be above 10C - but I'd have thought that lower temps would slow the growth rather than cause yellowing

Is Italophile around?

As well as the slug pubs, there are other ways to tempt them to leave your plants alone.

Slugs love the sweet inner leaves of lettuce - chop some up and  leave in little heaps to attract them - then pounce in the late evening!

Also oranges and grapefruit - cut in half, take some out of the middle for your breakfast and then place the halves cut side down on the ground - go out first thing in the morning and remove the slugs while they're having their breakfast

Thank you Hostafan

Good morning Chicky

Also those seedlings are far too long and leggy - they're not getting enough light.  Squash-type seedlings should look like this
