Hi guys,
I am growing guajillo peppers and one day I saw many leaves curling a bit and showing some spots. Here I attach a picture of a leaf. I would like to know it this is a fungal disease. I'll appreciate your help a lot.

i am usually leery of worrying about things.. as we roll into late september ....

knowledge is power.. but it doesnt mean we need to react ...


RE: Fungal disease identification help

Thanks ians_gardener and ken_adrian for your follow-ups. I just wanted to make sure. It was on most of the leaves of a medium plant, 2.5 ft. What I did was I pinched off most of them with my fingers and the plant responded very well. Now it is growing vigorous and popping out multiple blooms. I recently bought an organic fungicide made of postassium bicarbonate, so I am going to use it for prevention of future fungal diseases. Thanks.
