One of the reasons I just joined this site is because of a problem I'm having with one particular Dahlia. I've been growing
them for years and have seen most common problems (although mainly insects and powdery mildew).
VT has been getting rains lately. In fact, we're getting to feel like the tropics (80 degrees with 100% humidity and raining heavily at least once a day, if not two or three times).
This morning, I walked out to one of my established beds, and I found my two foot high Kelvin Floodlight drooping. None of the other plants in that particular bed are having a problem. I checked for insects and found nothing except one lone Japanese Beetle, who met his maker. The plant is showing no outward signs of anything wrong, except of course, that it is drooping badly. No bugs, no mildew, no mites, no spotting of the leaves. Help! I have no idea what to do about this (and really hate to admit it, lol. Last year I had a plant do this and it eventually withered and died off, although the tuber was in great shape when I dug it up.
