Dry Leaves on my new mango trees (6" tall)

    4 responses

Sort:
alil2theleft starts with ...
The leaves on my 2 mango trees (one is 3" and the other is 6" tall) are drying out. They were unbelievably healthy up until one week ago. The leaves began to slightly droop and now are drying out. They are staying green for the most part but are to the point now that 3/4 of every leaf is nearly dry. They feel stiff and thin, almost feel like they may begin to crack soon.
I have never germinated mango trees before and am at a complete loss.
Thanks in advance for any help I may receive!

@Marguerite
I looked up a lot of info on the mango tree and found that it would grow pretty much anywhere. The thing is that the trees will often not fruit (or not fruit with anything useful) when grown in a climate it is not meant for.

I am not kidding at all, they were doing SO unbelievably well just a week before this occurred. The leaves were very full, thick and moist with the natural waxy appearance that they should have. I am not sure if the type of fertilizer I used did something to the plant or if I over watered it or what. =(
I really wish I knew lol
They were so beautiful and healthy before this happened.
I was going to attempt to bonsai the 2 of them together into one pot and keep them small.
If you or anyone else has any clue please let me know.

I'd give them some liquid potash alil2theleft, not only will that harden up the plant, it is essential for water regulation in plant tissue.
