Recently i have been growing okra plants from seeds and i find that out of all the shoots three of them wilted. Completely puzzled on what has been happening to the plants? I have attached a photograph of it. The leaves in the recent shoots have yellow spots on the leaves.

Recent Okra shoot

  • I don't see wilting in your picture. The yellow spots could easily be a fly who put her eggs inside the leaf itself. Transitory. I'd cut them off later, not now. I think that glaucous or whitish covering is normal for ocra leaves. It is a bit early for powdery mildew. Are these in your out door garden or are these plants in a greenhouse? They seem to be planted in pots, yes? Please send what pnuts has asked for sure and another picture or two showing the entire plant/pot kitnkaboodle? Are you in the southern states? Grins! Where do you live? – stormy May 31 '17 at 17:59
  • @stormyThank you for the inputs. Yes, Its on my terrace and i have planted inside a grow bag with cocopeat as the potting mix. I live in India. – Krishna P S Jun 2 '17 at 11:27
  • @pnuts Occasionally i have been using diluted bokashi tea, the panchagavya mix and vermicompost as fertilizer. Ample sunlight is available throughout the day. – Krishna P S Jun 2 '17 at 11:30
