Mangos - trouble with new growth
« on: April 08, 2023, 07:33:50 PM »
The new growth on both of my mango trees - Glenn and pickering - is looking pretty bad. The new shoots are also slumping over now (since the pictures were taken). Any ideas what's going on?









I've been running my sprinklers every day for a few weeks because I seeded some wildflowers. Hoping it's not root rot or something. I'm going to quit running the sprinklers out of an abundance of caution. Fortunately, my mangoes are the only species showing any issues.

Likely damage from Thrip-type insects. Very common this time of year unfortunately.

Subsequent growth flushes should be okay, right?

Most likely assuming they occur a month + from the current one, at least thatís how itís been historically.

They can be difficult to treat without really hardcore stuff but since itís temporary we donít bother. Frustrating for young trees though.
