Speckled pepper leaves. Cause?

Hi there! I'm a Brit living in tropical Indonesia and have a Thai or bird's eye pepper plant (among many others!), which is doing quite well. It's pretty bushy, had loads of flowers and many chilis growing.

However, virtually all the leaves are speckled (mottled?) with yellow spots. Other than that, it seems pretty healthy: no leaf deformation, no leaf curl, no yellow/droopy leaves. It is free of pests to the naked eye. Could it be mites? A disease? A virus? I've quarantined it but would appreciate some input from some experts!

Hi Jim and welcome to the forum.

In this instance, a picture is worth a thousand words. Can you post one?

(Not that I'll be able to help anyway but there are some much more experienced growers on here than me.)

I agree. Definitely a picture would help.

Hi there.

I've tried to attach a photo, but for some reason I cannot. I keep getting the text [img][img] in my message. It doesn't allow me to insert a photo from my laptop :(

Hi, We don't host any pictures on our domain so you will need to find somewhere where you can upload pics to and then link to them from here, perhaps another member can point you in the correct place, there is a tutorial in the FAQ but may be out of date for photobucket
