Q.Newly Planted Trumpet Vine Dry Leaves

Zone Zone 8a | buzzardsroostterlingua added on October 8, 2020 | Answered

I have a small trumpet vine I planted about 2 weeks ago. I live in the chihuahuan desert, I have planted in a sunny location and mixed the sandy/clay soil with coir compost and potting soil. It is in a full sun location and temperatures are in the low 90’s during the day. I have been watering a little daily until it is established but I just recently noticed the leaves turning brown on the edges and just today a few were very dry and crumbled off. Am I watering too much or not enough? Thank you, I will attach some photos.

It is best to water less frequently but thoroughly. Also, your plant is probably suffering from transplant shock. It should recover in a couple of weeks. Continue the deep watering, but less often.
