Fisuc Deltoidea leaf morphology and coloration

Post  Tom Simonyi on Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:56 pm

The two pictures are the front and back of the foliage respectively, taken yesterday. I know that the red midrib is characteristic of the species; however, I am intrigued by the morphology differences and concerned about the lighter leaf coloration....I see no evidence of insects....I followed Jerry Meislik's advice earlier this season and utililzed both chelated iron and a fertilizer regimen with micronutrients. Further input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Tom

Chlorosis.

Try some epsom salts -- tablespoon to a gallon, repeated weekly.
