Hi, I have bought passion fruit from a shop and planted the seeds, they have all grown quite fast up to about 4 feet tall. However, some of them have developed what looks like a disease where some leaves have turned pale green then white. 

I asked why this had happened at the garden centre, but they were not sure why this had happened.

-They are kept warm, well watered, maybe I have given them too much fertilizer?

Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You've possibly over-watered and over-fertilised them, Newbie. Cut back on the water, cut out the fertiliser completely, and see what happens. It's very easy to kill young plants with kindness. They're best left, within reason, to develop under their own steam to let them build their strength.
