Answer: Hi Justin,
Sometimes mites can cause the leaves to dry and curl up. They are very small and difficult to see without a magnifying hand lens. You may see some slight webbing on the back of the leaves. Have a close look at the sick chilli to see if any mites or aphids are present. If they are present use some Nature’s Way Insect and Mite Killer which contains natrasoap can be used. It is bio-degradable and non-residual.
