Red spots on Golden Malinka leaves

I have 4 fuchsias in one general area, and this one (Golden Malinka) is unhappy while the others are blooming well. The Golden Malinka seemed to stop growing a month or two back, and hence no blooms. I started adding more plantfood to his water and now there are a few new shoots.

We had a heatstroke this week and now his leaves have developed these red spots... any ideas? The backs of the leaves have no damage- the spots seem to be on the front only. Sorry for the quality of the pictures, these are a phone camera. thanks!

No pic so this is a bit of a guess. From what you have said it is not rust (fungus), which can be red but always appears on the underside of the leaves. You say the weather has been very hot lately. Fuschias do not like heat so I wonder if this is a form of heat stress. Try shading the plants with something till it cools down a bit.

BTW - it's MaRinka, if you need to Google for info about it.
