watering

curios(z5/6 NJ)August 9, 2007

i've been having problems with leaves not unrolling and

noticed that water has been gathering inside the base of

the rolled up leaf. experimented with cutting back on

watering to once every 3 days, and that seemed to help,

but now with all the rain we've been having, back to same

problem. has anyone else had this experience? no evidence

of bugs.

If leaves are not unrolling it is almost always leaf rollers. http://mrec.ifas.ufl.edu/Foliage/entomol/ncstate/cater12.htm
Check for little webs along the edge of the leaf that is not unrolling. The only negetive effect I have encountered with overwatering is rust. Water collecting in the base of the leaves is normal.
