Need help with my Jolokia (W Pics)

takahirosgMay 15, 2011

Hello all,

I hope someone will be able to solve my problem. I have been growing my jolokia from seed in a 100% vermiculite media. Watering with chilli focus fertilizer(pic below) every 2 to 3 days. 18hrs under T5 fluorescent lighting, plant tip is about 5 inches away from lighting. I have been facing this curling issue for a few days and the leaves have a slight yellowish tinge. Please advise.

The distance from the light source

Vermiculite holds a lot of moisture and doesn't offer very good drainage.
Have you examined the roots on your plants?

The fertilizer looks good, especially since it contains the minor nutrients.
Are you fertilizing at full strength? I would use a 1/4 strength dose if fertilizing
more than once a week.

Hi Josh,

I guess now i will check the roots and prick it to a more balanced growing media. Yes, i'm feeding it at full strength. I will follow your advice and use a 1/4 str dose. I will update pics.
