20 is fine chillies do well at 28 and down but anything lower than 5 they will stop growing and go I to stasis... This is when they stunt themselves it takes a lot of nutrients and heat to get them going again

Hosts fan you would be risking it putting them out with so few leaves mine are in flower and I'm not risking it!!!! They will be fine to 5??? however if it drops below this frequently you are risking them going into stasis . They will stop growing and getting them going again is tricky..... Put them out in the day bring them in at night

Kef I have just sowed some little elf for a competition ( growing chillies in a demijohn!) if they come up I will send you some.... My first lot are going into the poly tunnel hurrah but the last lot have just been potted on... 75 this year!! I have just spent a week at Norfolk chilli farm and had an ace time .... I have decided that I enjoy the growing so much I'm going to grow to sell next year and am also going to grow for a few producers which is a huge privalage...... Kef try soaking the seeds for 24 hours in Tra or Epsom salt

Ok have spoken to a few others and we are all of the same opinion it's not a problem just either light too close, over feeding or odema get a fan down there to increase airflow....cut down the feed at this stage you should be only feeding slightly ( mag&cal) half measure (2.5ml per litre) chilli focus..... But if you have no ventilation fan away!! If they offend strip them the plant will repay you

Omthree... Firstly nice plants .... What lights do you you have them under and how high away from the plant are they? I personally don't think there is anything wrong with them. Sometimes plants under lights do curl and get "thick" underneath.. My space chilli has the same thing and it's thriving.... What nutrients are you feeding them?... I will go ask some others as well but they look fine too me will reply with what some others think shortly
