I started these peas indoors about 3 weeks ago. They have been growing exceptionally well. I came home from work today and noticed the leaves are looking a little sick. I cant tell if they are just stunned or if the have a mildew. Can anyone identify what this is? Should i be worried or is this normal?
Pea plants are susceptible to a number of diseases that often result in wilting and yellowing of the leaves.
Preventing yellowing and disease, avoid planting pea plants in areas with poor drainage and take care not to water pea plants excessively. Know the pea plant varieties before planting to ensure the best match for the weather and conditions in your area. Fertilize and use fungicides and herbicides to prevent conditions encouraging disease development.
