Fucshia Leaf Curl

fantasylilies(9 CA)April 15, 2008

Hi! I'm new to the Fucshia Forum- I have leaf curl on the top portions of my Fucshia's in hanging baskets. They are healthy, in the shade, and I give them good soil. Anyone know why they might get drastic leaf curl??

Thanks so much,

Hi Chris sounds like you have gall mite they are from hummingbirds or even bees.
Best thing to do is trim off the infected parts throw them away and spray every 7 days with seven spray then once a month to keep it under control. Hope that helps

Thank you so much! I will go ahead and do that. I do have hummers visiting them every day - the smaller blossomed ones did not get it, just the larger blossoms!
