The Q&A Archives: deformed leaves on Shamrock Plant?

Question: I have had this Shamrock plant for about 10 years and the leaves are deformed not all of them just some they look pruny like our hands when we are in the water too long? Have never seen this before. What is going on?
Thank you

Answer: Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain what is happening. It could possibly be caused by aphids. These are small, soft bodied sucking insects that feed on the most tender new growth. They can be rinsed off with a spray of tepid water or treated with a commercially formulated insecticidal soap per the label directions.
