Chilli leaves turning yellow? 
If your chilli plants leaves are turning yellow there may be a few reasons this is happening.

One of the most common reasons for yellow leaves on a chilli plant is lack of required nutrients in the soil, usually a lack of nitrogen for the plant.

Other deficiencies can be lack of iron/manganese/magnesium which are vital for the chilli plants nutrient uptake, these can be leeched from the soil due to excessive water but can be re added via a spray solution.  Ironite is good for the iron issue, and for magnesium
you can try watering with diluted Epsom Salts.


**Here is our recommended solution for : fixing yellow leaves with Epsom Salt


If the lower leaves of your chilli plant are yellowing ad dropping off don't be too concerned as this is probably simple choriosis (yellowing) caused by excessive watering or age.  As long as you still have healthy green leaves at the top of your plants.

Don't discount pests or bacteria as a probable cause either, If the leaves on your chilli plants are turning a mottled brown and yellow with splotches, it may be blight. Chillies are related to the tomato and can suffer from the same diseases.

Pests causing yellowing of leaves can usually be identified by irregular patches and spots on your leaves and signs of young leaves curling or withering.  Try out our natural chilli pest control methods.
