curling leaf on my hot peppers - HELP!

Durham, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

a couple of my hot pepper plants' leaves are curling at the edges, apart from that they have flower buds and look a healthy shade of green, what do you think it might be? irregular watering maybe? they'll be going outside soon (i dont want to risk them yet :D) will that perk them up? or should i not worry about it.

Do you have spider mites as an indoor garden pest at all? I've seen that sorta curling when they are present. Usually there is some sign of webbing around tho. Have the plants been allowed to dry out completely and wilt? That could definitly result in the edges of the leaves curling. If new growth is not affected you don't have a problem. they look great otherwise.

no red spider mites, they may have dried out a lot, i missed a couple of waterings once when i was away for a couple of days, do you think this will affect the cropping?

It shouldn't. The plant looks healthy otherwise. I would blame the lack of water too.

oh well, hopefully i'll have lots of jalepenos in a few weeks or so!
