Leaves curling up and some down

Hi sorry to keep bugging you all with my leaf problems:)

I'm still new to this and have a problem with my Satans kiss chilli plant and ske of my peter pepper plants.
In pictures I see everyone with perfect dark green leaves all standing up at a perfect 90degrees.
Only a few of my plants are so lucky.

Here is a picture of my Satans kiss (could only uploud one photo, will upload the others in the next post)
The leaves are closing length wise which never happened with the ones I had last year (actually my Satans kiss plants usually had the best leaves out of all the plants I had last year).
I thought maybe I over watered them as they had just been repotted.
They've been in the sun today for 2 hours and back under t5 lights now. The soil has completely dried so they are definitely not over watered. I've now watered a little bit and still no change. They are under t5 light 18hrs a day.
Just want to know if it's normal or if there is a problem?

I will post about my peter peppers underneath or in a new thread so that I can post a new picture (don't know why I can only add one per post:()

Thanks for any help

RE: Leaves curling up and some down

Here's the problem some of my peter peppers are having, some worse then others. The leaves are just hanging and curling under. Hard to get a good photo. I've also let them dry out incase it was due to overwatering.

RE: Leaves curling up and some down

There could be a multitude of possibilities...
Just my 2 cents:
I've only had that upward curl (exactly like your photo) when I had an aphid infestation ... Check the bottom of your leaves to see if there is an issue.
The bottom curl I have had when my plants get shocked from a combination of light/heat/and drought... When watered better they perked up, but some leaves retained the bent appearance with no ill effects to the plant as a whole.
