I had been trying to plant chili plant and it always end up like. When I first started here it was not a problem but now it looks like it is impossible. The chili I'm trying to plant is cayenne pepper. Basing on my past experience I think the pests are thrips and aphids. So for this particular plant great care is taken to ensure that these pesky little fella don't get at the plant from an early stage. Once the plant is transplanted from its grow cell, it is already protected with a very fine netting. Nope it did not help! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden ) It was growing great until it was about 8 inches tall and the new buds become like this ??? Need help here!

Any suggestion is most welcome. I'm lost!!!
