I've had a couple that looked worse than yours Mango Stein...and they bounced back, albeit very slowly (in true Luc's fashion.) Chris

Look's like my 2-foot tall plant is about to die, from root rot I think.
Probably because I watered it too much... 9L every evening. But the weather has been so hot and also it is on a raised mound.
Has some shade cloth above it.


They don't need a lot of water , actually they are very hard to kill , years ago I planted about 500 in a huge tub , left them under a longan and kinda ignored them . All grew well were transplanted and sold .
Don't forget that here in their natural habitat they don't get any rain for at least 8 months , just a little TLC will not hurt  ...

I'm growing them in middle Italy(Ancona) with no issues, they are just covered from the cold wind and less than 1 year old, so for sure you won't have problems in your place.
I did plant the seeds directly on the ground in may/june last year and have been growing happily without any shade cloth.
