Mango tree in a Pot

Zone WILSON, WA 6107 | Anonymous added on October 16, 2017 | Answered

I have a three year old Kensington tree in a pot from seed. The tree is healthy & full of flowers. My question is, why are healthy leaves falling & others curling & drying on the tree?

I am not sure what would cause this- has there been any change in the tree's environment recently? If not, it could be a watering problem or a disease problem. Check the leaves for any signs of insects or insect damage, or spots or discoloration that could indicate disease. See the "pests and diseases" section of this article:

If the tips are turning brown or dry first, see this article:
