What's wrong with my lima bean plant?

Asked June 17, 2015, 1:51 PM EDT

Hello gods and goddesses of all things agro, Can you tell me what's bugging my lima bean, and what I might do to keep it from croaking? Bottom leaves are starting to show up this way--flowers are still looking good, and the few tiny baby pods are unaffected so far. Thanks in advance for your generous help!

Lima beans do not grow well in pots. Yours looks like it could use some fertilizer. The damage to the leaves is inconsequential and nothing needs to be done about it. Be sure to provide sufficient water and fertilizer. vw
