oh pls help me! my periwinkle leaves started to shrivel suddenly! (in only a few hours!) i saw that the leaves are limp looking and thought they needed more light so put it under a table lamp for a couple of hours but it only got worse! the leaves seem to curl up on the undersides. What is happening to my periwinkle?! It was still ok for the past couple of days and I did no change to it since then. the leaves got limp once before and I did the above (shift to more lighting) and gave it some water and it got better but now, it got worse under the light! could it be that it needs more water? badday

do you have bugs on it? spider mites come to mind, but there are others...

nope. no bugs. the plant looked better today. guess might be lack of water. (i gave it lotsa water last night) but the flowers look bleached.. oh my... do u know if periwinkle is a thirsty plant? bcoz i just watered it a few days ago... cant be that dry that the plant shrivelled in such a way right? i dont want to risk drowning it by watering too often. btw the humidity here is very high because i live in a tropical country. as for the on and off bleached looking flowers, im totally clueless too!
