This is my seed grown crispa.
Today I found the leaves with brownish streaks. What is it?
Also a few leaves toward the top is wilting.

You might want to use Google "images" and look for: fungus on clematis leaves.

Are you keeping it just damp or really wet?

Here's a Google "images" page on fungal infected clematis leaves:
http://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1058&bih=475&q=fungal infection of clematis leaves&gbv=2&oq=fungal infection of clematis leaves&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=img.12...7656.16062.0.18328.35.15.0.13.5.1.875.1593.2-1j0j1j0j1.3.0...0.0.Mer7RPRdOpM

If you're not afraid of using fungus sprays, then use it on the clematis. I fear the spray since I saw on one label "Causes blindness", not even "may cause blindness". If it happened to my clematis I'd use a fungal powder, available at nurseries and most likely the big box stores. Keep your eyes and mouth covered!
