Passiflora maliformis problem

I'm having a difficult time with my P. maliformis seedling. It has about three leaves at a time: one small, new and healthy; one larger and fringed with a hint of yellowing; one with tan, necrotic, withering tissue which eventually falls from the plant. The seedling has been slow to grow, and the root development is sparse. I have taken a photo of the seedling which can be viewed at the attached photobucket link.
Is this a fungal related problem?

RE: Passiflora maliformis problem


Have you been fertilizing your seedling? Some plants, tropicals especially, are sensitive to chloride. Unfortunately, potassium chloride is common in less expensive fertilizer. I have seen similar damaged leaves on some of my non-passifloras before I learned to stay away from fertilizer containing potassium chloride.
