Bacterial Leaf Spot

Sat Jun 25, 2016 1:17 pm

In December last year we germinated a Yellow Scotch Bonnet seed. When the seedling was big enough we moved it to our aeroponic system, but after a couple of weeks we noticed that the plant had become unhappy. The leaves were turning yellow and brown and shrivelling up! We diagnosed the problem as a Bacterial Leaf Spot infection, rather than throw the plant away we tried to save it. We were careful to remove any leaves that looked like it might be affected, and dispose of them promptly (which didn't leave much left). We made sure that we didn't touch any equipment or other plants without washing our hands thoroughly to avoid spreading the infection to our healthy plants that were sharing the same system and tent. It has been a very long 5 months of very slow growth but the Scotch Bonnet has finally burst in to life in the last month and produced some really nice sized pods. They are still waiting to ripen, but we are pretty pleased that we didn't give up on the little fella!  ;)

Good thing you did not give up on the plant! And amazing that it could be fixed! It's probably partly because you were so careful not to spread the infection. The Chilli Plant looked quite nasty before, and looks great now! Very well done and inspiring to see. Maybe I do give up a bit to early sometimes... ;-)

How long would it take to grow a chili in a greenhouse? From seed of course!
