Squash leaves turning translucent

Post  arla on 5/15/2012, 12:50 am

Planted out a spagetti squash, and the snails got it enough that it died, took out the dead one, put in a regular squash (had one nicely growing in the window) and now some of the leaves are starting to go "translucent" (the green is disappearing, and just the spider web of veins left.

Anyone have any ideas? Or is my SFG just doomed (I say doomed, because my Spaghetti squash that is planted outside of the SFG is doing quite well right now, even though it's planted in pretty much the worst soil everywhere)

Hard to tell without a pic. Try looking for "squash leaf disease" in google images and see if you can match it.

I managed to take a couple of pictures this morning


I'm wondering about mildew, in which case (from what I've read so far) there isn't much I can really do, just have to pull the plant up, suck it up, and move on. Just frustrating is all.
