I’m not sure if i should describe here all my queries or on a specific forum, nevertheless here it is:
Two months ago i got a gift - bottlebrush tree and it was perfectly fine. I repotted it same night to the bigger concrete pot and added some soil around, watered it and kept on my balcony on the sunny spot.
I was watering it almost every day in a small quantities, and i started to see that a lot of branches on the inner side started to get dry and brown very soon. I got scared, thought the sun is too strong and moved it a meter away towards the semi-shadow. I kept watering it and even misted for a few nights, because i thought it lacks water.
Eventually the flowers all became brown and it never bloomed again. I cut off some dry branches, however soon remaining leaves started look grey and new green growth was wilting badly. There were whitish mold looking small patches.
I also sprayed the tree with mix of vinegar and dish soap. It looked better, white patches disappeared but these grayish hair-looking mold is growing more. I thought i probably watered it too much and that’s why the mold.
Now i am watering the tree only once a we ek, no misting and its back on the sunny spot. Leaves are still looking bad and I’m afraid i killed the tree
i am not an experienced person with growing trees so i was trying to find a clue online but i feel like I’m running out of time to save it.
I am attaching pictures of how it looked before with flowers, what happened a month ago and now. Please help
