Even my Brug (Cherub) doesn't seem to be immune.

I'm not organic so I'll try anything? I saw a few weird looking orange bugs under the leaves. They looked like tiny praying mantis with wings but only a half inch long. Could they be the cause?

Your first 2 pics look like the leaves are curling from Mite damage and the Cherub looks like Cats. Check under your leaves for tiny worms and smoosh'em! BT works great on worms of any kind and for the mites I use Neem oil. Spray plants in the evening so you don't burn the leaves. Be sure to get the top and underside of every leaf! The neem will only kill the adult mites so you will have to reapply to kill the hatching babys.
I hope this helps!

Bayer Rose 2-in-1 is systemtic and last for 6 weeks, feeds and protects from insects all at the same time.

Thank You Judy. I have used Orthenex and my Daturas are doing remarkably well. In one more week they'll be back to normal.
