I have a couple of Carolina Reapers I'm growing hydroponically but the big one's leaves look I think the wrong colour.. Is this the correct colour? If not what do I need to do to rectify it? I've included the smaller one for reference as it looks the correct colour... Note the big one has chillies on it: big plant!

Small plant

  • Do you moved the plant recently? Do they have enough sun? Fertilizer/soil? For me, they are not so bad. The last one is too dark (for me) – Giacomo Catenazzi Apr 21 '19 at 16:19
  • Yeah but only after it turned that lime colour... It actually started turning that colour after it fruited. I've got some Magnesium and calcium which I'm gonna try on it. – LeeAlexander Apr 22 '19 at 17:37
  • What hydroponics method? Kind of looks like Kratky because i'm not seeing an air pump. Have you checked the usual suspects (pH, ppm)? – Deolater Apr 23 '19 at 17:29
  • Also useful might be some climate information. Hardiness zone (if US), or other information might help. How hot is it? Is this the beginning or end of your growing season. – Deolater Apr 23 '19 at 17:31
  • Yep I'm using the Kratky method.....i kept the plants in doors over winter... Put the seeds in I think around October time... Just sitting in the window pane, I have lights but for some reason the plants I tried with the lights all died. So what your seeing are the ones that sat on the window seal. I'm in the UK so only a week ago put them outside 20c...brought them back in as the day temp dropped to 12c night 7c...ph is 6 and ec is 3... I use rainwater as it has an ec of 0 then add the nutrient to ec 3 and pH it down to 6. – LeeAlexander Apr 24 '19 at 19:20
