Hi, i have planted a passiflora edulis flavicarpa in a container about 3 months ago. Lately the plant has been under attack. The plant has many leaves with small puncture dots.

It also has some leaves that are covered with a waxy/clear plastic substance.

Who might be the culprit? Any ideas on how to manage the situation.

For the first photo I'd guess spider mites. Look on the bottom of the leaf for tiny reddish specks. For the second photo I don't know.
