Q.I Bought An Eucalyptus Gunnii Plant In A Flowerpot For Indoors. The New Leaves Are Very Thin, Frail And Are Curling.

The plant gets lots of ligt, i water it so the soil doesnt dry out. The new leaves are very fragile, thin, but not papery. They are curling and twisting and are very silvery. And now even the big, older and more robust leaves are starting to get wavy. The plant grows quickly and grows new little branches nd leaves. It si just not the healthy, flat and round leaves you see when you look up Eucalyptus Gunnii on the internet.

It is probably well overwatered if it does not get a chance to dry out between waterings. The soil should be allowed to dry, completely, down to about 2 or 3 inches between waterings. This will help prevent rot, or root suffocation.
