Any chilli growers out there?

If so,  how often do you water them? Some of the leaves on mine are yellowing and I'm wondering if I'm overdoing it?

I grew mine in pots in my greenhouse so any excess drained away.
If yours is in grow bags you can always poke a few holes in the bag and see if things improve.

In pots in a conservatory with a weekly tomato fertilizer feed.

Re: Any chilli growers out there?

I've read that they benefit from drying out. Are the leaves yellowed at all Jim?
