Brown spots on leaves

Alfred9July 18, 2011

I've been having problems with my pepper plants which seemed to be infected by mites. I used an organic pesticide of neem oil, garlic, dish soap and hot pepper. This brought back the plants however they now are presenting brown spots on their leaves. Can someone help me with this.

Neem and soap will leave a coating on the leaves that can burn if the sun is too intense.
When I use Neem or other soap treatments, I do so at night and I rinse the following morning
before the sun hits the leaves.

Can you describe your technique?

Hi Josh thanks for your advise. I do spray them during the afternoon when they are not exposed to the sun, however I do not rinse them next morning and the sun here in Puerto Rico now is at it fullness.
