Jaboticaba: is this normal?
« on: October 22, 2022, 07:30:46 PM »
I just brought in my sabara inside for the winter a few months ago and it has never dropped leaves like this before. I had sprayed it with neem a few months ago but it is starting to drop leaves now. Will it come back?



It gets some sunlight and it isnít watered heavily because it is inside

None of my jaboticabas have ever acted like that when I've brought them inside for the winter. It looks like a root problem. Specifically, it looks like it is not being watered the right amount. I would check the soil to make sure it is not staying too wet.

Looks like a water uptake issue. Could be from waterlogged soil, underwatering, or too much salts/fertilizer in the soil. Probably the latter. I had that issue with some after a repot, basically didn't grow for over a year until I repotted them in a better mix. They did recover. Jaboticabas are tough.

It may be from the water I used for a while. I didnít realize the creek water I was using was a pH of 10! But it didnít start acting like this till a month.
