Hello,

I’m new to this forum and gardening in general. We have a curry leaf plant in our yard which seems to be under distress. The leaves seem dry and light coloured and the branches are bending downwards (pic attached).

It’s in full sun, watered regularly and I even added a slow release organic fertiliser recently. The other plants around it (lemon tree, hibiscus, mandarin, camellia, gardenia, etc.) seem to be thriving but not this one. Any help in understanding the cause would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you for your response Logan. I planted it about a month or two ago. It’s being watered daily and amply. I don’t use recycled water. Could tap water cause a problem? Thanks.

Am not familiar with the plant but from the looks of it I agree with Logan. I had the same difficulty with some bushes last year. If it was me (because of previous experience) I would dig it up and look at the roots to see if the root ball is moist and whether it has been broken up some. It might need to have the roots teased out of nursery soil so that they are expanding into garden soil. Just a thought.

I agree with Jewell and make sure that it's planted at the same level of the soil in pot to the same level of the planting hole, don't plant it deeper or it could rot the stem.
