Please, not more plants infected :( Can someone help confirm?
« on: February 21, 2021, 03:12:52 pm »

Please can someone let me know what is going on with my Mitragyna speciosa?
I'm worried it's the Mosaic virus again :(

I have another Mitragyna speciosa but that one looks healthy so far in comparison to this one. They are both in the same soil mix, same feeding, same humidity, everything is the same. There's no signs of pests, in the past I had spider mites and aphids which have been dealt with a while back. I don't think the aphids bothered the Mitragyna but the spider mites certainly did.

Anyway, I can't figure out what could be the problem, especially with the other one looking okay, other than a virus.
What do people think? My concern is with the new leaves only. The old ones were effected by spider mites and so Im not concerned about how they look.

Oh and they were in the tent next to my Salvias before I threw away the Salvias

EDIT...
1st photo is my Malay with the concerning leaves.
2nd photo is my Pink Vein Indo which looks healthy in comparison.
Both are grown with the same environmental conditions, both are putting out new leaves which makes it easy to compare. (Again ignore the old leaves with the spide mite damage, im aware of that. Its the new leaf growth that I'm worried about)

Perhaps a photo of my Salvias will help as well.
They all started growing deformed and patchy coloured leaves.

The new cuttings / plants were in the same environmental conditions I always put them into. I had never seen them like this before. Usually they would grow very healthy.

I'm also really suspicious of the new growth on my Psychotrias although these don't have the patchy colour, just the deformed and stunted / smaller leaves :( These, unlike my other plants have been in slightly different growing conditions - slightly lower humidity, so I'm hoping it's just down to that. But this looks really drastic for a small change in humidity.

Ughhh this is making me so upset :'(

Actually upon further inspection there is this.
At 1st I wondered if it might of been some spider mites which somehow survived. However when I had the spider mites none of my Psychotrias were effected by them.
The circled part also looks more uniform and has a more solid shape and straight edges than what I have seen spider mites to do.

Could it be aminopyralid as MP suggested when I mentioned about the Salvias? Although I hadn't uploaded pics at this point which would of probably helped.

It certainly looks like it more with the Psychotrias, but I don't know.
Maybe some of the Miracle-Gro bags were contaminated somehow. I had recently potted up several of my plants with it.

My soil mixes are only ever Miracle-Gro Premium Moisture Control Compost and Perlite that I add.

My latest plant to stress about if it has a virus, fun... The supposed Psychotria colorata which was shared around but is actually mislabelled.

Im concerned with the yellow lines near the start of the leaf. Ive not seen this before. What do people think, is it an issue or am I just overly worried now?

the first tree looks healthy to me, maybe the spotty discoloration was caused by mites on the young leaf-bud.
..i think the crumply new leaves on phychotria is normal, mine do that and eventually grow into normal leaves.
