Very small milkweed plants in my yard. Several have something chewing and biting the tops. Don't look like monarch caterpillar activity yet though.
Maybe a black mite or pest. I have tried wiping the top droopy leaves with 2 fingers a little bit and picking off one or 2 of the damaged droopy leaves.
Hoping they will grow back. Maybe I should water them or give them some fertilizer.
In my brother's yard 5 miles away, his milkweed are already 1-2 feet tall in a sunny protected spot next to his house. Very healthy looking compared to my milkweed in my yard.
