I am worried that this a virus of okra called Bhendi yellow vein mosaic virus. I say this because the symptoms are appearing on only one side of the leaf and only that leaf seems to be affected for the moment and the other seedlings are unaffected. If you leave the plant the symptoms will spread until the whole plant is affected. The veins also appear to be thickened. Bhendi yellow mosaic virus is spread by spread by white flies and the plant should be removed and destroyed. Do not compost the plant, seal it in a bag and put it in the trash or burn it.

It is Bhendi yellow vein mosaic disease. The symptoms include alternate green and yellow patches, vein clearing, and vein chlorosis of leaves. Fruits will be dwarfed, malformed, and turn to yellow green. The whitefly Bemisia tabaci is the insect vector.

Management : Infected plants must be collected and burned. Insecticides can be sprayed for vector control. Use resistant variety.
