Q.Camellia Leaves Curl Down And Burn On New Leaf Tips

Zone Sydney | kevinma2222 added on October 16, 2020 | Answered

I bought a camellia japonica(20cm pot) two weeks ago and transplanted into a larger pot. Initially it was doing good, but after two days some leaves bagan dropping and one branch’s leaves became wilting. Last week I think it might be the issue of pot size too big. So I transplanted to another smaller pot(25cm), and added some perlite to the soil but didn’t change it. Right now, about 60% the leaves are wilting down, but not dropping a lot. There is still new growth on the plant, but only recently some new grown leaves are showing burnt on the tip. Seems overall the problem is getting more serious. And I don’t know what to do. It’s spring time in Sydney, and I place the pot on balcony with very little direct sun. Watering it once a several days.

Unfortunately, care of these requires very strict routine and very specific care. They do not like change.

Unfortunately, there are too many factors to know what is going on. The first thing to do will be to start with ensuring that all environmental conditions are met. Once you know that care is optimal, then you can begin to look at disease.
