I was wondering if you could take a look at the pics below and let me know if the health of my plant is alright? My VFT is sadly a windowsill plant due to our living conditions. I think it's done pretty great since we got it in May ( I also included a pic of what it looked like the day we brought it home).
Here in NY, the weather has started to plummett and I keet by a windowsill with a very thing pane of glass (not double glazed), so even though there is heating in the room, it's getting subjected to some of the outdoor temperature via that.
I was wondering if this darkening of the petioles is a sign of it starting to sense the weather and prepare for dormancy, or if my plant is sick at all? The new growth looks healthy and there are like 3-4 baby plants that have sprouted that appear to be doing well.
I should mention that there appeared to mini leaf hopper larvea and their discarded shells on the plant for a while, but I think they either died or moved on. I can't see them anymore at all, so it looks like the plant survived that experience.
Any thoughts on whether I should be concerned about the darkening of the petioles here, or is this normal?
Thanks for any insight!
