Help with Leaves!

Posted by Dislike IA (My Page) on

The attached pictures are happening to some of my Habanero/Jalapeno Plants.

I am growing them indoors, under a 600 watt LED Grow Light, the temperature with lights on is 75-78, lights off is 68-70, humidity stays around 55-65%, depending on watering status inside the tent.

I placed them outside the last few days, trying to see if that would help them, however it does not seem to change much.

I am using Pro-Mix Ultimate Organic Mix, No nutrients have been used yet.

Water from the last watering was from a RO with DI filter to produce 6 pH water with PPM of 0, before this was tap water, left to air out the chlorine, and adjusted to 6~6.5pH. It has been over a week with the new water, and it does not seem to change.

Any help would be greatly appricated!

This is the Habanero

Have you been adding fertilizer? If not, please do.

The purpling of the leaves is due to exposure to extra bright light, just short of a "burn."

I have not given them anything. As I was unsure what was wrong with them.

Should I reduce the time the light is on? Its running 20/4 (20 on 4 off)

I have follow the illegal growing sites info. As not a whole lot of people grow indoors other than starting seedlings. Other than the illegal stuff.. Figured a plant is a plant... But I guess I am wrong. Lol

I remember when my seedlings were growing under lights, few of them were just like the one in your first picture. I did some investigation. Some said it is Phosphorus deficiency. Some said it is a lighting effect. Anyway, I did not change anything and after a while it went away and new growth became normal green again.

So whatever it was (in my case) was nothing to be concerned with.

BTW: Mine was a Thai. Here is a picture.
