Hi! I have managed to grow a lychee from seed. It is one year old plant. I have recently repoted it and it's leaves are turning brown and dry and have dry white spots.
Can anyone tell me what's wrong? Is it salvageble?

Thanks.

A freind suggests cutting all leaves off. I am inclined to agree. and would act quickly. Even then, there is a chance it will die.

Cutting of all leaves would definitely kill the plant since it could not photosynthesize anymore.
It seems the lychee has root burn from the fertilizer in the soil. I have replanted it and it appears the drying out has stopped. Hopefully it will survive.

Cheers.

Hi Lycheelove,

Young lychee roots are very sensitive with any fertilizers. Just pot it with new good potting mix and water well. Put it in a warm shade until there is a sign of improvement. Don't need to trim anything. Cheers
