Yellow leaves on My Tea

Post  LittleJoe on Wed Oct 30, 2013 11:35 pm

I've had it for a month, I know I'm not over watering it. But I lose several leafs a week to yellowing. Is it possible I'm over misting it? I do it 3-4 times a day.

If this is Carmona (Fukien Tea) then it's normal to have a few leaves turn yellow now and then - why are you misting so often? Can't see it being a problem, just seems a bit excessive, I never bother but mine lives on a bathroom windowsill so humidity as quite high anyway.

Yellow Leaves

Fukien tea, Ehretia microphylla, is a high light plant. Where are you keeping it? For the winter, it will do better right under a fluorescent light. It is also a bug magnet. Examine the underside of leaves, branches, etc.
Forget misting. It spreads fungus. You may need to provide a humidifier.
