  • Could you share how do you water your plants? How many plants are there in a container and what is the weather and temperature? – Yennie Mar 21 '17 at 2:24
  • We water it bu mugs. This container has 2 plants. We have not more than 2 per container. The weather is hot and humid in summers. Temperatures ranges from 28 to 36 degree C and humidity is max at 80. – Muddassar Mar 22 '17 at 9:29
  • How often do you water? Another latest update on the plant condition? – Yennie Apr 4 '17 at 12:04

Leaf curl on vegetables can be a mosaic virus but is far more likely to be stress in non-commercial crops.

Too much fertilizer, too little humidity ( though 80% should be more than ample ) are the most likely causes.
