Shriveling Leaves

Post  seppy13 on 5/22/2010, 8:17 pm

Does anyone know why the leaves on my butternut squash plants are turning gray and shriveled? I used Mel's Mix and the soil seems pretty moist...I have peppers, eggplant, and broccoli in the same box and they seem to be doing fine.

Can you post photos? I find things that sound similar to what you are describing, but not exactly the same.

Here are some pictures of my butternut squash plants and one of my zucchini plants that are starting to turn yellow. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.

I was hoping someone would respond to this. I'm having the same problem but I had a freak snowfall after I planted them and figured that was the problem. I removed the shriveled leaves and it seems to be better.

Looks to me like it's just the first leaves (seed leaves) that are dying off. This is normal, and as long as the 'true leaves' are happy, I wouldn't worry about this.

+1 what Wyld said. It looks like the whole thing is kind of yellow. Is that the case? Maybe cut back on the water a bit would help.
