Bad Sign?!

Curling new leaves! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Just a couple of days before I noticed that all the new leaves were curling and drying up, couldn't find any visible pest on it so I guess the vegan vampires must be the culprit. The weather was cool so it cannot be any heat causing this.

While inspecting the plant, I found that it had started to flower again and there were quite a few of them. The foilage is still very thick anf I thiink it will have a hard time growing the fruits in such confine spaces.

Since the time I almost made the plant naked, it had grown back it's foilage but in terms of height just a coupple of miserable centimeters. I wonder whether the weather here is suitable for this species .....

Coming back to the vegan vampires, I had the plant sprayed with my mix of garlic, onions, dish washing liquid and red wine. The next day most of the affected leaves fell off and I continued with the spray. So far so good, no more curly drying out leaves. I wonder what is next!!

Hello KK-- Well, I hope that the plant continues doing well. It has more leaves now as wellas some buds and flowers. Let's hope that it goes on to deliver you some nice chilies this time.
