Hi everyone,

Some of the leaves of my chilli plant are turning yellow... these leafs tend to fall off easily too... Any idea what is happening? Mineral deficiency or pest attack?

i also have a similar problem with my money plants

http://us.a2.yahoofs.com/users/4567e876z40...hQDFrGB7u50N67I

the leaves are flim and green but recently it just turned yellow and shredded lots of leaves. I have 3 pots of money plants in corridor and balcony and it is facing the same problem. I suspect that it would be water or fertilizer problem.

Any advice?

Hi Guanster,

I water the chilli plants 1-2 times/day depending on my work schedule.
I fertilise them weekly (is that too often?) I have several different types of fertiliser and I vary them each time I use them (Fish Emulsion, Thrive and Horti - home plant and orchid food) I commonly also use the water from washing the rice to water the plants :P/>

just watering daily is good enough...to be frank...chilli don need tat kind of previliges and attention...

just stick to chicken manure powder...or bone meal good enuf..cuz end of the day u will be eating them what..



once every 2week is enough..once a week is too much..the chilli may end up growing so big and have not much flowers and let alone big n nice chillies...



don use rice water...some plants are sensitive...like pomegranate..it will result in mealy bugs easily....so just use tap water can le


maybe when the plant matured...use 13:13:21..but little bit nia..if nt burnt the whole plant..to encourage more flowers....but all along..chilli...esp chilli padi..are suppose to auto flower one...so...doneed to worry too much..

Phosphorus (K) - Stunted, very dark green leaves; purplish to reddish coloration of veins, leaves or stems; late flowering & maturing of fruit
Calcium (Ca) - Deformed or undeveloped terminal buds & root tips; blossom end rot on tomatoes & peppers
Magnesium (M) - Mottling of older leaves; interveinal chlorosis
Sulfur (S) - Light green color of whole plant; chlorotic younger leaves
Iron (Fe) - Interveinal chlorosis of upper leaves leading to total bleaching; new leaves may be yellowish white
Manganese(Mn) - Interveinal chlorosis, may be followed by necrotic spots; frequently occurs on middle leaves first
Boron (B ) - Dieback of shoots or growing points; thickened, wilted or curled leaves; distorted fruit; hollow root vegetables
Zinc (Zn) - Short internodes; leaves appear rosetted; misshapen leaf blades; small leaves with interveinal chlorosis; abnormal root growth
