My mom bought me 4 passifloras and I only have 3 left. Two of the three have spots on the leaves and I've included a picture of one. I will include a second picture of the same plant in a reply.

Here is some additional information:
I have found both tiny snails and white slugs on both, which I have removed.
Saturday or Sunday I moved them from a 6" to a 4" pot after realizing I potted them up into too big of a container.
I have been using soapy water spray with a small (VERY small) amount of alcohol mixed in to combat the slug/snails. (I rinsed off the mix.)

Feeling a bit like a bad daughter :-/ I will feel horrible if I kill these.

Tiki, it may be bug bites from white flies or thrips. I have the same problem. I'm going to go with trhips unless someone has a better idea.
