Mandarin Plant Curling

    4 responses

Gradmaster Yoda starts with ...
Hey just wanted to ask if anyone knows if this is a bad sign for a young mandarin plant. These two pictures are taken a day apart. I moved them cause they weren't getting any direct sunlight. I moved them somewhere where they get constant direct sunlight and I think it might be too much. For now I will move them to an area where they get about half of the day's sun then some shade later in the day.

The soil got a bit dry but was wet in the morning when I left and I watered when I get home.

I think you answered your own question! Too much sun too fast.

A couple of my Citrus are in shade all winter and as the sun get higher they get 50% sun and they fruit well - since i gave slow release and some black grit they are flowering like crazy and no yellow leaves to amend :) Even a commercial orchard the trees shade each other from afternoon sun except the westernmost one.

Thanks, despite moving it to shade the damage appeared much worse the next day. But now it back in its original position. I'm not sure it will fully recover but I do believe it is still growing. It has a stronger sibling also, who didn't seem to mind the sun other than closing a leaf up a bit (i assume to reflect sunlight). I'll keep them in their original position now as they seem to grow happily despite non direct sunlight.

This is the sun damaged one and its stronger sibling (I call them siblings because they come from the same piece of fruit) I think the sun damaged one isn't a failure cause its stem is still growing past these leaves as if it will still grow a new set. Would the damaged leaves recover or fall off by the time it grows a few more?
