Q.Morning Glory Leaf Browning Spots

Zone 55331 | goboog added on April 6, 2020 | Answered

New seedlings growing about 4″ high developing some brown areas on the leaves. Using large 10″ pot with drainage hole in bottom. I’m afraid of too much watering or not enough! Plants get full indoor sunlight through window. Some browning leaves are wrinkling too. Is baking soda water a good remedy?

Yes, that would be very overwatered. Morning glories are extremely drought tolerant and don't really tolerate wet feet.

Treating the soil will be more expensive than it is worth. I would advise letting the plant finish (But let the container dry out down to about 4 inches between watering) and baking that soil for 3 hours at 200 degrees.

Baking soda, if used improperly, will make that soil unusable.
