Passiflora Leaves curling, Help!

emanuelmeJune 25, 2011

I've had these vines since April and they have been doing terrifically well until the past few weeks. I'm not sure what the cause is. We do have many many ants so I thought maybe we have aphids or spider mites but ive looked with a magnifine glass and macro-lens and i dont see anything. Can it be overwatering or too much sun? It is in full sun and I am in the desert where it's 90+ daily. please help! (also some leaves def look like they have been eaten)

Leaf curling is often a sign of micronutrient deficiency. I'd take a soil sample to your county agent for testing. That will tell you exactly whats wrong with the dirt, if anything. Check with them first to see how much they need to do a test.
