Newly received lychee

    1 responses

Hi all,

Just bought some lychee trees and transplanted them into large pots from the original pots they came in. They looked fine apart from a bit droppy when i received them.

I poted them into 60 litre pots plenty of chicken poo and seasol and powergrow with its first watering. After 2 days into the transplanting to pots, the new leaves dried from the tip and edges, turned black and is falling off when I touch it. The mature old growth seems to holding up fine, had 1 old growth leave fall off, but the rest is in tact. Have I done something seriously wrong? I live in Melbourne and the temperature has been 10-20, I can't imagine it to be a temperature problem. Any ideas what I might have done wrong and what I might be able to do to fix this?

They are very prone to fertilizer burn and it sounds as though your potting mix is too hot. The leaves dying from the tips indicate fertilizer burn. I would recommend repotting it into some good quality potting mix and do not over fertilize it.
