mike, I have had that happen on multiple occasions. It appears that only those first set of leaves are turning. If so I just snipped them off and the rest of the plant grew fine. Is that that the case with you as well?
It looks like you are correct, Shawn. It only seems to be affecting the first true leaves. That's good. It looks like I will be topping almost all of the new pepper plants. Perhaps the Pumpkin Spice will be left alone. I really want to see the progress after the first Mooch is added.
I remember tossing plants when I saw the purple. Then I left it once and it was only thst set. I am glad you will keep them. I look forward to watching these. I know I keep saying that but I need to get new seeds and these are all contenders.
This is what I'm talking about. Edema is not bacterial. It is usually environmental. It's not absorbing water properly so the cells blister. It's usually caused by poor air circulation or crowding. But it can also be the nutrients. The circulation in the room is pretty good and there is no crowding.
