Zucchini leaves are weird!

Hi,

Well today my zucchini leaves looked weak like falling a little bit down and I actually took pictures to show you guys and ask you what was wrong but!!.....In about 30 minutes I checked them out again and they were perfect! :shock:, so I was wondering what might have been.

Here, look.

Before

After

And I'm also trying to rehabilitate some chilli's that one of my teachers gave me, do you think they have a chance? because they look reaaaally bad.

And what can you tell me about this chives, they were in a really little pot, I tranplanted them into a bigger one and i think they will be fine.

Here they are now

Check this out, I noticed that leaves looks like something bit it, I made a dry chilli's and garlic pesticide, do I use it?.

Those chillies look like they've been hit by a frost (or some herbacide). Pick all of the peppers off, water, and watch for improvement. If it declines, it's probably shot.

The chives appear to be doing well, perhaps cut the tops back a little.

That last picture of the zucchini leaf in somewhat unintelligible, are there holes in it? What exactly is the damage?

Things are looking good :)

About the zucchini I don't think they have any damage at all I just found weird that they were weak at one second and at the other they looked perfect, and the last pic where the zucchini leef looks like bitten or something that was my concern.

Cheers.

Did you water the zucs after seeing them looking week? If so then my guess is that they were to hot or dry.

I'm trying to see where you think it was bitten. If it was somewhere on the edge of the leave, I would have to say that the edges look normal, so it may just be a defect in the leaf. Being indoors, I don't thing you will much to worry about along the lines of pests.

Yeah, I've been there, particularly when growing indoors. You look at something so much that pretty soon, you start thinking "that just doesn't look right," when, in reality, it's just you.

Don't worry, I'm sure everything will turn out fine with the zukes.

BTW, what's the status of the chili peppers?

Well I picked out all of the chillis and I'm just watering them, but i was thinking if I could use some fertilizer or anything that helps them recover or do i just keep watering them.

Cheers

You could try some fish-emulsion. It's organic and give the plants some nitrogen to help with the vegetative (leaves, stems, etc.) growth.
