Hot peppers with spotted leaves

There is no pepper forum and I've got a few questions regarding my Hot Pepper plants if anyone cares to give some advise. Well actually one question. What would be making the leaves turn yellow and/or spotty? I have one Cheyenne ( I think thats how you spell it :lol: ) one Jalepano, one Hawaiian Pepper, and one Habanero cross breed. And they've all turned a little spotty some worse than others. Any help??

Hi BigDaddyBonsai,

Sounds like a leaf spot disease. This site describes mostly tomatoes, but these plants are related and they are prone to the same diseases. Take a look here to see what matches what you see going on with your plants.

is this happening to leaves all over the plat or just those near the ground? Are you spraying them with fertilizer or water at night? Photos would be helpful
