Q.Fuchsia Leaves Browning
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?
