Bizzy Lizzy Leaves

Nicholas Smart added on November 13, 2017 | Answered

The new leaves on my indoor Bizzy Lizzies which are forming are growing abnormally. They have uneven edges and look as if a caterpillar has been munching on them. As I mentioned, they are indoors and there is no sign of any bugs anywhere near them. They are not discoloured and the plants looks very healthy otherwise. Any ideas what is causing the irregularly shaped leaves?

This can be caused by a pH swing, as well as pests. Use dolomitic lime to control the pH, and use neem oil, rosemary oil, garlic extract, or clove oil for pest deterrent. This link will take you to a collection of articles that will help you keep pests away:
