Leaves On Pelargoniums Have Umbrella Shape Instead Of Being Horizontal

Question From: Drakes Broughton, , United Kingdom
Q: Hello Nancy. The leaves on my 3 month old seedling pelargoniums seem to form a shape like an umbrella instead of being horizontal.I have them stood on a window ledge indoors, temperature of 60 f. Could it be caused by a lack of , and reduced hours of, daylight ? Otherwise they look fine and are not overwatered. Thank you. Regards, Stan'.

A: If the leaves have good color and no signs of damage, it sounds like a reaction to temperature change. It may have been very warm in that window on a sunny day and dropped quickly at night. I'd snap off a branch and take it to your local garden center and have them take a look. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
