Q.Orange Trumpet Creeper Is Drying

Zone 122011 | bswadeep9 added on August 9, 2020 | Answered

I have bought orange trumpet creeper last year and planted in a small pot, it took its time to grow, this year untill July is grew very fast and i felt probably its time for me to shift it to more spacious bigger pot, but even before i could do that, the leaves started truing yellow and now its seems to be drying, i was so much looking forward for its flowers this year. By the way i am writing to you from Delhi, India. Currently its very hot and humid. Not sure what went wrong, need some advise to save my creeper.

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. It sounds like it outgrew its container. These will quickly outgrow, even, a large container. Annual maintenance will need to be done in order to keep this plant happy.

I would suggest repotting into a mix of potting soil and compost.
