Thanks a lot Stacey. That's really helpful.

I've not actually fed them much at all yet. There was some fertiliser in the original potting mix, but I haven't started with anything else yet. Perhaps I should! They're under fluorescent bulbs (philips starlight is the brand) and the lights are about 30cm away. A fan is a good idea. I'll give that a whirl.

Thanks again!

Good news. Hopefully it's the same condition then. Thanks a lot Bob!

Thanks Bob. That's very helpful.

Did it pass or did the issue continue throughout the affected plant's lifetime? What you're saying about it being some kind of internal thing makes sense, because it doesn't seem to be spreading to the other plants.

Thanks KEF. I've posted over there too now.

I have a question about my chilies, and was referred here by KEF. 

I've got several varieties under lights in the cellar, and they're been doing fine. I have Jalapeño, Habanero, Cayenne and Tabasco. Now, just in recent days, on the Jalapeño only, there is something bad happening with the leaves. They're curling a bit, and there's sort of deposit on the underside of the leaves. Well, it looks like a deposit, but I can't scrape it off.

Any clue about what's going on or how to fix it would be much appreciated. I can't seem to upload pictures, but here are some links:

Still not able to upload, so here are the pictures on flickr:

Hope that works. Many thanks for any input.

By the way, I noticed this has only affected the Jalapeños. The Cayennes, Habaneros and Tobascos are unaffected so far.

It's just 60k, in jpeg format. Is that too big?

It's a "RadUpload Ajax callback error. Source url returned invalid content" error

I get a big error message, but there's no X. Bit strange.
