Hi all

My chilli plants have been affected by something or other recently that I figure is fungal, but I can't be sure...

They have black spots on the stems and leaves with a yellowish discoloration. This isn't all over the plant, just on some leaves while others do not seem to be affected just yet. There is some wilting and blackening that seems to start at the tips of the leaves. Attached some photos, can anyone advise me on how to help my plants?!

Thanks!!

Nick

Ps they are Apache chilli plants

Welcome!

It looks like mildew. Spray them with a fungicide. Better air circulation will keep the problem from returning.

Let us know how it goes. We love 'after' photos. Smiling
