Hey,
I had this problem in the summer as well – the leafs start to curl upwards and the newest leafs are super small and it seems like they are not growing properly. Do you have any suggestions what the problem is and what I could do?
Not every plant is effected, some are just fine and others look like this.

Thanks

It is probably a watering issue. Too much water causes curling and wrinkling. Very low or high humidity can also cause it but since not all of the plants show this it is probably too much water. You may also have "hard spots" in the soil which can lead to too much water in certain areas. To make sure this isn't happening just squeeze the plastic container to loosen up the soil after watering.

Spraying leaves in the evening only leads to fungal problems. Changing outside humidity to any degree is about impossible.
