Q.Pride Of Burma (amherstia)care. My Leaves Brown On The Edges.
I’m in Hawaii and live where I can put this tree in a filtered light place. It had brown edges when I bought it but I thought I could give it the good care and make it grow better. It did flower but the leaves just keep getting more and more browned edges. I water every day, its very humid here, and I’ve even put shade cloth over it. I’ve planted in the ground now but it never perks up. I want this tree to flourish and I believe it can. what am I doing wrong?
