    What is going on here? New growth is thick and deformed and shows on a few of my plants. I see no signs of mites or other bugs. Is this the from the cooler weather?

    Beats the --- out of me Scott. I've seen similar growth on a few of mine also.

    I've seen that same kind of growth on crotons before...
    To me it really looks like something that could be caused by thrips...

    I think it's an over abundance of fert. The leaves seem to grow out of it & return to normal shape.

    At least you got some crappy looking leaves. I lost alot of new emergent leaves with just nubs remaining. :(
