I started with the seed ,seedless cucumber variety the sapling was doing good until now has lot of flowers now but the newer leaves are curling down . It is grown in coco peat and vermicompost mixture, orchid boon /flowering solution once a week. What is wrong with the leaves ?
I have a lemon plant bought from all lalbagh 2 months ago had one fruit in it already , has healthy leaves had few small fruits recently that all dropped ,I am fertilizing it regularly with organic pellets and liquid fertilizer as mentioned above please help.

It appears like the cucumber is suffering from calcium deficiency. add a pinch of chunam(lime) in 1 litre of water. dissolve it and water the plant.

Hi GG
I have tried adding lime,Epsom salt watering and fertilising fine ,but some of the leaves dried and yellow mostly at the bottom.some of the flowers also turned yellow and did not produce cucumbers.
No obvious pests any suggestions as to what the problem is ,hope it is not verticillium/bacterial wilt.

I looked at the pics. It is calcium deficiency. Can you add a pinch of Chunam ( Lime) to the water and water it.
