Q.Curry Leaf Plant- How Big Pot Should It Be In? I Replanted Mine To From 12 To 18 Inch – And It Is Dying Now

Zone 90036 | Anonymous added on July 8, 2021 | Answered

I repotted it in a larger pot and believe it is going through shock I am also not sure if I am under or over watering – it has become very hot in California now with summer.

This appears to be overwatering. When potting up, it is best to only put it into a pot that is 1 or 2 inches larger on all sides. This is to avoid there being too much soil uncolonized with roots. Uncolonized soil tends to remain too wet for too long.

You will have to watch watering, very carefully. Only water a small amount around the area of the tree until it fills in some of that soil. This is going to be guesswork, from here, unfortunately.

instead of watering these heat tolerant trees extra in compensation, allow them to dry out, thoroughly, down to about 2 or 3 inches. This will keep the soil, moderately, moist, while allowing the important portion of the soil to dry out. If you are unable to determine soil moisture by hand you may need a meter.
