    hello,

    my MG is planted in a 16'' container and receives lots of sun. it is climbing fast and no bloom yet what so ever in my climate zone 9-11. Lowers leaves are having yellow spots as u can see in the pic. i only water it when it really get dried. All leaves wilt in afternoon and in evening, fine in morning. No fertilizer at all. can some one help me?

    thanks,
    Khabbab

    Looks like there may be some stippling, indicating sucking pests such as mites. Looks closely for these, using a lens if needed.

    Shouldn't be wilting, try bigger pot and/or watering more often.

    i sprayed a general mild pesticide on bottom leaves only. no avail. trunk portion of vine is naked now. It is nothing to do with the size of container as the upper portion of vine is spreading like crazy.
