Hey folks.... so I've been treating for a thrip infestation I saw on some other plants, and since then, these pepperoncini have grown, but the new leaves look crinkly and off color.

Nutrient deficiency doesn't seem likely, but I googled and could this be from the thrips?

After treating for bugs your pepper should snap out of it, as the weather turns hotter. When I see bugs on my plants I just blast them with a jet of water on the plants and knock them off.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
