Duranta Plants


phyllis ponvert added on January 1, 2016 | Answered

I have a Duranta in the form of a small tree, about 3 1/2 ft tall. I live in Michigan and brought it inside for the winter. It is in a large sun room with plenty of light but not much direct sun as it's winter. It is healthy, not blooming now, but is losing some leaves. Should I be concerned? Is that normal? Should I fertilize it in the winter? What kind of fertilizer should I use? Thank you for help and suggestions! Phyllis Ponvert Ann Arbor Michigan

Most likely the plant is not receiving enough light. You can add supplemental light to help the plant through the darker winter days.
Also make sure you are not overwatering.
Check the soil before watering, it's best to avoid watering on a schedule.
Do not fertilize until the plant begins actively growing again.
