I started some chillis from seeds a few months ago. Almost all of them are doing fine but not chilli Red Tip. I did sow 7 seeds but only one germinated. The one plant that i got is now growing really slow. The other plants is about 10-15 cm tall by now but this one is really small. What do you think is wrong and can i do anything to fix it? This is a picture of the tiny plant.
There can be several reasons of why Chilli Seedlings stop growing. It's hard to tell from the picture exactly what could be the reason, but I can give you some ideas:
- If you recently repotted them the tiny roots might have been slightly damaged. If this is the case, just leave them alone for a few days and be patient ant they might catch up.
- You might have been overwatering the plant. That can also cause damage to the roots. If you think this is the case, let them dry up a little bit.
- Temperature might be a third reason. If you keep it close to a Window, it might be to cold. Chilli seedlings need to be in a warm spot until they are a little bigger. Try to keep this little plant at 23 degrees Celsius or more (23-28 is ideal). If you don't have a heating mat you can place it close to a radiator or use a spotlight.
- If none of the above, give it a mild nutrient mix the next time you are watering it and see if that kicks it of.
