Leaves changing to light rust color

maryo(n.arkansas)August 2, 2007

I've never had a problem before this. Half of the leaves are turning color. They are not mushy. I've taken a leaf cutting in case it dies. Will this spread to my other violets? What the heck is this? Help!

Maryo -

Old leaves? Young leaves? How long ago did you repot it?
Can you make a pic?

If it is one and only one plant - you are doing the right thing - root the leaf and dispose of the old plant. Most possibly something wrong with the conditions - too cold, too much fertilizer in a soil, Ph gone out of the desirable range etc. And this plant is just the most sensitive.

You can leach it, repot it in a fresh soil and baby it a bit, but usually it takes forever to grow out of the damaged look.

If you post the pics - I am sure somebody will come up with a better diagnosis.
