What’s Eating My Arabian Jasmine’s Leaves?


konekko added on June 26, 2015 | Answered

I have a Grand Duke of Tuscany plant in a pot on my 2nd floor balcony. This morning I noticed lot of big, round bites have been taken out of the leaves from the edges. It's like something with the bite radius of a dime has been munching on my plant. The edges are smooth/clean, not like the uneven edges you get with caterpillars as they nibble away. That, and most of the bites are the same size. What the heck is this? This is my first jasmine plant. I brought it home on Memorial Day with 2 blooms and it's already given me over a dozen more - I'd love to be able to save it!

If could be a cut worm of some type, without seeing the critter that is responsible, I would go ahead and treat the plant with Neem Oil
