My kiwi leaves are losing their green color too fast. Even new, small leaves can lose it and fall off.

The kiwi is 1 year old, grown in a pot in my apartment. It is not close to a window or a radiator.

What should I do to prevent this from happening?

  • Can you add more information, such as how long you've had the plant, and whether its growing in the ground or in a pot. If in a pot, how big is the pot and what did you use as a planting medium?

This looks like spider mite damage. Look for small white 'grains' or 'specs' on the undersides of the leaves. If you find them, then you have a spider mite infestation. Use a light soap and water mixture at about weekly intervals until the spider mites clear off.

Here's a good link from the University of California's Integrated Pest Management program, for detailed information on control/management procedures.


Are the roots too wet? Has it been fertilized?


I solved the problem by moving the kiwi 1m from corner.
