Hi I am new to the Forum and Relatively New to Gardening.

 

I have grown Red Capsicum from Seeds and am facing 2 problems:

 

(1) Leaves are turning slightly yellow and Falling

(2) New / Young Leaves curling down and Falling

 

Below is a brief of the plant:

- Growing Medium is a mix of Red Soil + Cocopeat + Vermicompost + Perlite.

- I have been watering the plant regularly. The soil is usually dry on the top 1-2 inches and quite moist below.

- The plants sit on a window that gets a good amount of sun for 4-6 hrs daily.

- I Fertilize using NPK 19-19-19 once a week and every 15 days spray it with compost tea.

 

Please guide me.

 

Below is a picture of the yellowing leaf.

Thanks for the reply.

The older leaves at the bottom were turning yellow and falling.

I could not see any small insects in particular but I suspected spider mites as sometimes when I shook the leaves keeping a white color paper below small specs of dirt which I suspect may be spider mites fell. Since these specs were few and I do not know exactly what spider mites looked look like I assumed it might be dirt particles or something. Also I have been seeing a lot of cobwebs between leaves of surrounding plants. I tried spraying / cleaning with a mix of neem oil + water every alternate day but to no effect.

The new leaves are turning downwards especially the tip area and healthy green new leaves falling off on their own.

 

I am facing leaf curling on my rose plants whereby new leaves are curling upwards and inwards. Also new leaves are getting light green in color with darker green veins. I read somewhere that it could be an iron deficiency problem and to use cheleated iron but here in Mumbai I am unable to find cheleated iron. What is its common name and is there any substitute I can use. Almost all the leaves of the rose plants shed and new leaves have come. I have pruned the plant and use Top Rose fertilizer every 10 days as mentioned on the pack.

 

Please help.
