Hi all,

Could you please see what is wrong with my chilli?
I've been treating it with Neem oil for two weeks now.

Thanks.

That looks like a fungus and Neem has fungicidal properties, but, it apparently isn't working. So, before buying a copper based fungicide spray with non-diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide and see how that works.

Doesn't look like fungus to me - could be wrong! o_O

It looks more like it's burnt. That could be caused by many things but the usual culprits are water being splashed on the leaves when it's very sunny or, not so common, some other chemical. :)

Looks like Aphids, the Bananas The student greenhouse at North tech (my tech school.) had the same problem. You see, the path leads to the veins, because that's where the most nutrition is for the aphids.

First of all make sure it is aphids, which I doubt, by looking on the underside of the leaves. They are easy to see. You can spray with a strong stream of water or use soapy water or an insecticide. But Neem is already being used and it is death on aphids. By looking at the picture of the large white spot it looks as if it is fuzzy on its edges. And if it is fuzzy it is definitely a fungus.
