Post Help with Chilli Plant?
Hi, I have two chilli plants that I grew from seed and are about 5 months old, they have been developing yellowing leaves (see pic). Now I’m not sure if this is caused from bad drainage, low iron or low nitrogen? The soil drains excess water quite quickly but it is on the heavier side (working on that) and I feed with seaweed extract every few weeks. Any advice will be gratefully accepted, Thanks

P.S its autumn here (Sydney, Australia) but still quite warm

Too much water can sometimes cause a yellowing of leaves does the plant have lots of leaves or just a few?

Looks like low iron, i.e. alkaline soil. You could try some iron chelates. You will get a quick response if that is the case.
