Thanks for the reply.

Ill get some suitable chilli plant food. Thanks.

I have 3 plants. 1 Cayenne, 1 Jalepeno, 1 Scotch Bonnet.

The problem is affecting both the Cayenne and Jalepeno but the Scotch Bonnet seems fine.

All 3 were initially inside but I took them outside a few weeks ago when the weather was so nice.

All 3 plants have produced quite a few actual chillies (which i was extremely happy about), but with the 2 which have this problem the chillis seem to have stopped maturing. Perhaps this is because it is not so hot anymore?

I do smoke unfortunately

Thanks for helping!

Thanks for the reply.

I found some spider mites on it the other day, but Im sure the colouration predates the spider mites (as I check them regularly). I have started spraying  the leaves with water to try and get rid of them.

I used to feed them BabyBio but when I read on the internet that too much Nitrogen can harm them I stopped feeding them (this was around 2 weeks ago). I do think that I could have over-fed them previously because I tend to be a bit "generous" with my plant food.

I try not to water too much, maybe 1-2 a week when it is hot.

Is it possible that they have tobacco mosaic virus?

Do you think it could be spider mites (that I may have missed on pervious inspections) causing the problem?

Hi All,

Im new to gardening (and this forum) and I really need some help.

The leaves on my chilli plant have started to look unhealthy (picture attached). They are slightly yellow with brown patches in the middle. Does anyone have any suggestion as to what is happening, and how to fix it?


Many thanks
