Answer: Based on your description it's tough to make a guess but it is possible that nematodes are at work in the roots on that side causing an inability to take up the fertilizer. This can also cause a lack of uniformity, branch dieback or stunting in the growth of certain sections of the plant. This is more likely in a plant growing in the ground than in a pot. You might want to check with your County Extension for a more specific diagnosis. Their telephone number is 745-7513.
