Re: help with P. Auracana
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.
