Care of Ming Tree

ljrussell added on November 6, 2016 | Answered

I have a 35 year old Ming that has been in the same pot the entire time. It is still pretty, but I would like to repot it since it has been so long. Some stalks are bare, but I leave them alone. I forgot to water it one week, and now it has some leaves wilted. What can I do to help it live?

Repotting is not required for a healthy plant, but moving to a larger pot will help the plant grow larger and may help it grow to fill in any bare spots. If you want to keep the plant the same size, keep it in its old pot.


You can prune back the bare stalks, as described in this article:


As for the watering issue, simply resume your usual watering schedule. The leaves should recover; if they don't, you can prune off the dead portions.
