Geraniums - Knowledgebase Question

Question by coderplus2

Why are my Geranium leaves turning white? I have fertilized, watered everything I can think of and nothing works. Now there are no flowers at all. By the way it is terribly hot here now in North Texas, would that do it?

Heat stress can cause geranium leaves to lose their chlorophyll and turn white. There's not much you can do about the weather but in a few weeks you can pinch your plants back to encourage a bushy growth habit and lots of healthy new leaves and flowers. Just wait until the weather cools a little. If you pinch them back now they won't develop new growth - it's still too darned hot!
