Ghost Chili's Leaves Curling
I'm very new to gardening, but I've been trying to research as much as possible to keep these things alive. I got one of the ghost chili cans with seeds inside for a Christmas present from a friend of mine. I started them on January 8th and they have grown fairly quickly.
So far I've been keeping them in an enclosed space lined with foil, and I'm using a 26 watt daylight cfl for lighting. The temperature stays between 84 and 86 degrees. I keep the light within 3 inches of the plants and keep it on 24/7.
I water only when the soil is dry on the top, then water until water starts to come out of the drainage holes. I'm not fertilizing yet, but am planning on using a 9-3-6 fertilizer after transplanting.
There seems to be a problem with the leaves, so I figured I should ask some experts before I start fussing with it and killing the plants. The leaves have stayed a yellowish color and have curled more and more downward.
