Banana pepper leaves curling upward

jennieboyer(8)March 2, 2013


Please see the attached picture. These are banana peppers that are about 2 inches from the grow lights. The seedlings look healthy, but the leaves are "growing up" towards the light. The plant is not leggy, and I can see the tiniest beginning of the first true leaf, so wondering if it's anything to worrry about. Plant to close to light? Not close enough? Leave it alone? Thanks!

If youâÂÂre using fluorescent lights, then itâÂÂs just fine. You can fix fluorescent bulbs at 2-3 inches away from the tops of your plants. You can provide 24x7 light for your pepper sprouts for first 4-5 weeks; then you can switch to a 16:8 cycle for a week.
