Hello guys, its my first year of growing chillis, and alredy something strange is happening. The tips of my leaves are turning darkish green, then go dry and fall apart from the leaf. Could you help me with diagnosing what is going on?

Hi. Are you feeding them? Could be over feeding but maybe one of the pros would know more

The plant still looks young. Give it a good flush out with plain water and then try feeding half dose.

I'm afraid I don't know the cause but I wouldn't cut the leaves off because they're a bit damaged - the green areas will still photosynthesise and feed the plant. Yes those leaves will never recover the damage but I'd leave them to die off naturally. The plants look really healthy otherwise.

Are your plants in plastic water bottles as some form of cloche?

Where are they positioned pleased. Inside, out, window etc,?

reckon you're on the money there Phil - I thought maybe overferting also

flush with water, ensure the plant has adequate draininage halve your fertiliser regime and see how that works
