Q.Fuchsia Leaves Browning

Zone 45236 | Anonymous added on June 19, 2021 | Answered

I bought a fuchsia from the garden center this year and put it in the east facing spot under my porch. I’ve noticed tiny little spiderwebs which I sprayed with water under the leaves thinking it might be mites. I am seeing browning on the leaves now. The flowers seem to be OK but it’s not flowering as much. I’m fertilizing every two weeks. I have attached a picture. Can you help me understand what is going on?

Along with spider mites will come infections that they carry. Mites are notoriously difficult to treat, so multiple treatments will be necessary, as well as a fungicide to take care of the infections that they bring.
