I have a potted pittosporum which was healthy until I recently moved it from the patio to shade because of the very hot sun and it has quickly started dropping all the leaves and dying. Should I move it back into the light, plant it or accept I have ruined what was a good healthy plant? Needless to say I am not the worlds greatest gardener :-)
Pittosporum can drop leaves at times; especially during times of stress. Try morning sun and afternoon shade. Keep the container moist but never soggy or dried out completely.
Soggy roots can cause root rot quickly with Pittosporum.
