Thanks for your suggestions everyone.

Robin,

So far I have looked and no infestation in sight.  Could it be uneven watering?  What do you suggest for this plant? Any suggestions regarding light? Sun, part shade?

Thanks for your insight.

> Dear Alex:

We sell Pelargonium 'Aurucana' which has fragrant leaves.  We obtained the
original from Jay Kapac in Val Verde in Southern California.  I don't know
what the problem could be with the leaves.  Our plants are aggressively
healthy.  Could it
be uneven watering - letting it go dry and then perhaps over watering?  It
is sometimes easy to allow plants to go dry in clay pots.   Did you have a
look at the roots when you transplanted it?  Perhaps there is an insect
infestation, e.g.
root mealy bug?  Have a close look at your plant and report back.

Sincerely,

Robin Parer
Geraniaceae Nursery

I can't find any info on this plant.  I just purchased it at the L.A. IGS
show at Descanso Gardens last month and it seems to be dying on me.  Here
are the symptoms:
