This is my first year growing Cypress vine and morning glory. But I'm having some issues
Thumb of 2020-06-07/JohnnieF/df3714

First off is the black discoloration on the leaf from cold damage?

What would be causing this?

Why are a good amount of the leaves getting these indents or bumps and why are they growing in all deformed. Also some of the leaves are beginning to curl.

I was curious too if I could use vinegar to spray on the leaves and does it kill aphids and mites or whatever other pests trying to suck the life out of my plant

Here's a photo of the full plant

You want to be very careful not to over water or under water your vine in the big container you have. The problem is caused from a release of nutrients everytime you water. Using new potting soil that is loaded with nutrients will release everytime you flood the container. The excess dark green to black color is from excess nitrogen.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

I don't see evidence of bugs but if you decide there really are some, don't use vinegar as it will kill the plant.

Trust me there are bugs and I know for a fact because I brought both my cypress vine and morning glory inside because it was getting down 19 degrees from what I was told and it damaged my morning glory I cut leaves off that where damaged but now most of the bigger leaves feel paper thin like tissue paper and they are developing brown spots on the leaves. And the white stuff in the photo that I posted is a powder to keep bugs off.

And since both plants are in the morning glory family I figured I didnt need to start a new thread.

I don't see any signs of mites, spider or otherwise, or any other bug damage. The papery spots look like cold damage. When plants are in containers, they handle even less cold then the same plants in the garden. If the soil is dry, less cold yet.
