This could be normal, Wisterias are a deciduous plant. I don't know if they become evergreen in you climate but in the States they lose their leaves in the fall. It is also possible they have not been getting enough water they, like water. Aside from that disease is possible but in your climate there could be a bunch of things we know nothing about.

jose,
I think you are a little to warm for wisteria in PR...
For the most part where I live, they really don't do that great.
Biggest prob. is that MY weather goes from winter to summer in about a week, and rarely have I ever seen any flowers...
further north I have.

They drop their leaves in winter as vance has said, they also will drop their leaves very fast in pots if overwatered or underwatered in our climates...

Personally... I gotta say that I would probally move on to some other flowering plant that does much better in PR...:)

I agree Wisterias are considered temperate plants. Your best bet would be Bouganvilla and Malphigia.
