brown spots on blackberry jam fruit cutting
« on: November 19, 2021, 04:32:48 PM »
Hi:

I received a blackberry jam fruit rooted cutting earlier this year.  Took a while, but it finally had some new growth sept-oct, and today I noticed brown/orange spots on the leaves.  Is this something to be concerned about or is it fine?

At the moment, it's in an area which gets only morning sun (overcast or fogged) for 3-4 hours, then rest of the day bright shade.

Thank you!

Bump?
This plant appears to be a relative of gardenias, and looking up gardenia issues, it could be.. well.. a lot of thing *facepalm*  Any ideas, or nothing to worry about?

I'm sure it will be fine, they survive neglect really well. How much water does it get?

Shilohtech, when that area had sun, water was every 2-3 days, now that it's shady maybe 7-10 days.  I check the soil, keeping moist and not drying out.  Soil mixture is 3-1-1 (bark, peat, perlite) with about a tablespoon of a mild organic fertilizer (down to earth 4-4-4) since it's in approx 1 gallon grow bag.

I think for a period it may be been too wet, maybe that caused this.

Yeah, it was probably just too wet for a bit. It should grow out of it. I have some in direct sunlight, only remembering to water them every couple weeks maybe. The leaves will droop/wilt if they are really thirsty, otherwise they are not very thirsty plants. The soil/medium usually can be bone dry for at least a week before the plant will start wilting. Even if it wilts it will bounce back the next day after a good watering. I would reduce your watering by half at least. Let the soil get dry before watering again. Also hold off on the fertilizer till springtime.
