Blasted aphids!  Those guys can be really tricky.

For a completely non-toxic solution, you can try removing heavily contaminated foliage and then take your plants to a clean outdoor location where you can thoroughly wash each leaf with a jet spray solution of water and a few drops of natural dish soap (such as castile soap) as a wetting agent that will help knock off any remaining aphids.  If feasible, you can also release lady bugs or other predatory biological organisms into your grow space though it may be difficult to keep them on task and location.

You should ask your local nursery for an insecticidal soap that you can use to combat aphid infestation on edible pepper plants.  Make it clear that you don't want to use anything that can leave a residue since you will be eating the plants.  That'll be your best bet for finding something locally and effective.

You can also read this document for a much more comprehensive analysis of aphid infestation.

wow thanks so much for that! swim removed the infected leaves last night and is heading to the nursery today to check out the aphid killing products they have!
also in the last photo you can see a couple clones in larger pots at the front. would it be recommended to transplant to coco medium? swim has been reading bout coco and wants to give it a run. he has been using a pump in recycling system with continuous feed but would prefer just to hand water once or twice a day as he is worried about over watering and salt build up in medium. idk, so many different options every1 has a different opinion is it possible to transplant the bigger ones to coco? thanks for ur time i appreciate it:crazy2::thumbup:

Right! :wink:

Never used coco myself, perhaps someone with the experience will chime in.
