Diagnosis of Fuchsia Problem
I am having some trouble with a new fuchsia I bought a couple weeks ago. The leaves have purple-reddish spots on them (some turn totally purple) and others eventually turn yellow and fall off. When I bought the plant, there were I keep the soil moist but not sopping wet.
I have a few ideas on what the problem could be, but was hoping someone could narrow it down. Here are the theories:
1. Sun burn. I bought it from Lowe's where it had bright diffused light all day. The first week I had the plant it might have been in a place with too much sun. It had sun from around 2pm - 7pm, and some days it was hotter than 80F. This past week I moved it indoors b/c it was going to be 90+. I put it in a window with some morning sun.
2. Spider mites. I've heard this is a common problem, but I'm not sure if the purple dots are a symptom of this. Also, I looked at the underside of leaves under a magnifying glass and I don't see any critters
3. Some kind of fungus
