    I should start sowing some I guess.
    Last year I tried some Jalapenos and they did well, even if outside some fell prey to a pestilence which made the fruits rot, from October on.
    So, I will try again with the same variety and perhaps something different and more intense.

    Any suggestions about interesting varieties?

    Hi All,

    The problem on my chillies seems to be worsening. It’s not all plants though.

    Is this a problem? Should I bin the affected plants?? Does anyone know what this is???

    Is it lots of small lighter coloured bumps under the leaves? If so google Edemas, AKA Oedemas which are caused by excessive humidity (and/or overwatering). Are they sitting in water in gravel trays, or in an enclosed growbox with no ventilation?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think it is Endema. They are in an enclosed grow box and possibly not enough ventilation. I will adjust to give more and monitor. I will be superseded if it’s ver watering. I let the first inch or do of compost to dry out before watering.
