Just noticed this all over my cucumber leaves. I've grown cucumber before but never had this issue. Will it affect the plants growth and how can I fix it?

    Hello.. Any chance you could have got water droplets on the leaves in bright sunshine?  It looks like scorch.. Have you checked under the leaves for any aphids as they suck sap and cause similar marks. If it's just leaf scorch it shouldn't affect growth or cropping. Good luck. :)
  • I checked for aphids, lucky found none. Hopefully it's  just scorched because i wouldnt want to lose my little baby cucumber

    Are the newer, younger leaves affected or are those OK?  If the latter, I agree with mollis.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • The new growth looks much healthier. The last couple of days of sun might be the culprit. Thanks
