Default Twisty leaves?

Whats going on with these? I do not use any chemicals on my property, so I do not think its from glyphosate or anything.. Is this a disease of some sort? There are three images on the imgur page. Its really only effecting my Raja Puri and tall namwah. Maybe its the certain type of woodchips in that area?

Small plants react to environmental conditions .....in many different way's.
Woodchips from walnut trees will toast your plants Fast ....but I do not think your in that zone.



Just a hiccup..
The plant will sort itself out soon with new leaves

Default Re: Twisty leaves?

I had a very similar problem with my Raja Puri. I was giving it lots of fertilizer and we had a week of heavy rain that dissolved all of the fertilizer at once. Immediately afterwards my leaves started looking like yours except worse. I changed my fertilizing for that particular plant from once a month to half the amount every two weeks and the new leaves were MUCH better (although still not perfect). My Raja Puri has now flowered and fruit is on the way. My problem was too much Nitrogen all at once. I have no way of knowing whether or not the cause of your problem is the same as mine, but consider it as a possibility.
