Oh no! I'm so sorry that the weather is giving you such difficulties this year.
Hoping that things improve and that you can still have a good summer.

Thanks RB, zuzu, I had no choice, had to do it to save the rest, they're affected too but treatable,

still raining, tomorrow will take big ones to garage for few days (again) and start treatment,
little ones in experimental spot look ok (yet).

Where is my usual early and hot summer, come back soon.

beavercreek, sorry it's happening to you, all cuttings I send you and other people was taken from perfectly healthy plants.

There are many different reasons for what you described, most likely insects and/or mites,
but to be on save side check the link below and what I do to keep my brugs save and healthy.

Here is link to most problems and solutions http://www.trumpetflowers.com/plant-...-solutions.htm, click on any blue text for more information.
and http://www.abads.org/abads/Brug-Virus/brugvirus.htm

I moved big ones to garage, every plant looked like suffering from something different, after 1 day brake yesterday raining again for another week.

1/- I drilled bigger holes at bottom of every pot and
2/- removed all yellow and curled/wrinkled/affected leafs
3/- sprayed all with 'Bayer Insect Disease and Mite Control' (1 I disposed was half eaten),
why in garage? :
- to avoid more rain water,
- to avoid spreading to other plants,
- to avoid harming bees, butterflies and other good bugs (not if I seen any in rain but just in case),
4/- cut on extensive feeding for two weeks

I'll update in a week.

Oh Saba, I knew it was not your plants or you that did it. Just wanted some good advice from my guru on trumpets. I will surely try all your advise cause I'd love to see them bloom. Thank you so much! I think bigger drain holes is a winner. Mine are potted and sitting on a table on the front porch and some rain can reach them but we are needing rain right now.

Gosh! It sounds like a number of us who don't usually have any particular trouble growing Brugs, are having difficulties with them this year, and I'm counting myself in, with some plants that have always been easy for me, but which are struggling now, for some reason.

I expect that the weather is the biggest factor - my weather has been cycling through periods of very wet and very dry - but one thing that I know is having an effect is that, wet or dry, we've had unusually hot weather with tremendous humidity, and that is causing problems.

Here's hoping that we (and our plants) can get through this without too much loss.

beavercreek, zuzu, isn't it sad what happening this year, some of us have to much rain, some none.
I didn't have so much trouble with my beloved brugs and some other tropicals since I started long time ago.
Thankfully little ones planted in the ground are not effected.
beavercreek did you compare pics in link with your wrinkle brug leafs, I think some nasty insects are feasting on it, you can make your own made natural spray.
I have to many affected at once (they were to close to each other) and they're to big so I used chem.
zuzu, I agree

Wish you both luck with treatment and recovery of your beauties and also to everybody having same problems this year.

My 'Cotton Candy' brugs are finally blooming! They seem a tad late to be blooming but noticed other brugs in the area are blooming as well!
