Why are my leaves on my pepper plant-ling closing?

moralesiiiaFebruary 24, 2013

I'm wondering why my pepper plant leaves starting to close today? I just recently placed a rockwool cube into a flood and drain system I built it's been in there for several days and i'm wondering is it getting too much light maybe? Any ideas?

They will flatten out by themselves. They do look a little etiolated though. ie too little light, not too much.

I started my first peppers recently and noticed they close at night, I thought maybe they are sensitive plants that close if they get cool or it gets dark.

I wouldn't worry about the little guy until he get his true leaves.
