I have a variety of cucumbers planted and one telegraph cucumber plant seems to be having problems, leaves are more yellow and there are some cracks: telegraph cucumber plant

the plant is next to other types of cucumbers, Armenian and Cucamelon, and there other telegraph cucumbers also which are doing fine, here's all of them: all the cucumbers

does this plant have some disease, can it be helped ?

Have things worsened since you posted this? The large leaf with the cracks just looks like heat stress to me. I also see some yellow speckling on one leaf that could be from insects (harmless). Have you or any of your neighbors sprayed for weeds..within wind blowing distance?

    It didn't worsen, there are tomatoes nearby, and they have been sprayed with liquid copper, and they also had some sort of black micro flies , and they have been sprayed for that as well. Same spraying was used for white peach trees which had many micro insects under the leaves

  • Hello Omu! That is all good news. Hoping that you'll be trellising the cucumbers. I grew Cucamelons last year...made for much interesting conversation:) Jun 30, 2018 at 11:03
