Just wondering if anyone would be able to tell me what is wrong with my
silver lace vine.
I've posted some pictures on my website that pretty much tell the story.
than my description will.
Leaves get red blotches, with brownish spots - turn yellow then curl up &
It seems to be slowly spreading to the top of the plant.
I've tried applying safers soap twice, about 3 days apart. Last application
was about 3 days ago. Very thorough and both sides of leaves. Though the
problem still seems to be getting worse.
I thought it was mites because I had little webs everywhere, but now the web
seem to be gone.
I also had tiny little black bugs flying around the plants (I've heard that
can indicate aphids)- they are also gone.
I do not see mites on the leaves (I used to do pest management for apples so
I know they are just tiny little dots moving around on the back of the
leaves on apples - assuming they're the same).
Drainage in the soil is good.
This is the first year anything has been planted in that soil.
Gets full sun most of the day.
Top of the vine seems very healthy & still growing vigorously. No flowers
Other plants in that Garden are thriving (morning glory, dianthus).
Only fertilized with miracle gro once - probably a month ago.
Before I try anything else and cause more damage - does anyone know what
this is and what I can do?
Thanks so much for your help!
