Q.All The Tips Are Dried And Leaves All Falling Off

Zone L6B0H2 | arks0214 added on November 27, 2019 | Answered

I brought in my eucalyptus plant (about 4 ft tall) at the beginning of Oct and it was doing ok. Earlier last week I noticed the tips are becoming brittle and dried. I watered the whole plant very well because I thought it might be dried. but now all the leaves super crispy and it’s all falling off with the slightest touch…

It sounds like it suffered an infection from overwatering. This could have been mistaken for needing water, which when given will worsen the issue.

You can attempt correction with a fungicide. Usually, in container, any infections left to progress are fatal.
