    Heavy rainfall could be an issue.
    I would inspect plant carefully. Look for signs of insects. I do see some leaf damage in the image.
    The heavy rains and damp weather could also have invited a fungal disease.

    Neem Oil would be a good treatment as it acts as both a pesticide and fungicide.
