I've just started putting gernaiums outside to harden off during the day and almost immediately the larger leaves have started to go a dark maroony colour.
Is this just adjusting to the wind?
Gugle says that over or under watering can cause it (thanks) but I wonder do they need feeding or something?
it's possible though I'm only guessing, that as the wind can have a drying effect, that it is the "underwatering" as suggested. If they have been indoors in a stable environment, they may be affected to the hardening off (swing in temperature and air movement difference)
If this is the problem, will they just sort themselves out iyo?
I hadn't thought about the drying effect. I'll try upping the water. I suppose it can't hurt to feed them occasionally as well as they've been flowering and in the same pots for a while.
What happened to yours FR?
