I have a problem on a Carolina Reaper. It's +- 2 months old. I grow them indoors(living room, +- 20 degrees celcius) under a 45 Watt LED grow panel (50 cm above the plants). I use universal potting soil. The PH is 7. After a month I started adding Chili Focus according to the manual (once a week, not too much). I try to water when the soil is getting dry, again, not too much, but enough. I have other Chilli plants under the same conditions and they are doing fine (Carolina Reapers, Jalapenos and Birds Eye). I started looking on the internet and I think it's Bacterial Spot. Am I right?
1 day later I washed away the soil (in the baththub, very carefully not to damage the roots) and replaced it with new soil(1/2 seedling soil, 1/4 potting soil (ph 6), 1/4 perlite and a few cm of hydro granules at the bottom). I also raised the led panel 20 cm higher.
10 days later I took some extra photo's:
- another 5 days later I took two new photos. If you look close, you see the same condition is still there, but it's hard to say if it's new or it was already there. They remain small, but it does seem to go better. There are new small leaves forming in the top middle and they look better than the ones I removed. I don't know yet what I'll do with them, but for now I am still going to give them a chance. Small question; should I remove the yellow leaves?
