Thanks for your suggestions everyone.
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.

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
root mealy bug? Have a close look at your plant and report back.

show at Descanso Gardens last month and it seems to be dying on me. Here
are the symptoms:

pointers out there would be greatly appreciated.
