Planting a Papaya Tree

kadorish added on May 2, 2017 | Answered

We planted a papaya tree 2 weeks ago. The leaves are droopy. The bottom ones are yellow. When they fall off, more turn yellow and fall off. I'm afraid it has too much water or not enough. Ester

Your papaya tree probably has transplant shock, which is very common in recently transplanted trees:

It will most likely recover with time. A sign of a plant that doesn't have enough water is that the leaves will droop, but then perk up shortly after you water it. If a plant has too much water, the leaves will also droop but won't perk up after watering.
