problem with my Curcuma torch plant
I bought a curcuma plant and put it in a large container. The first week it was in the sun about a half day, the leaves curled up and started to turn brown. I then moved it to a more shady area, but the problem is the same. I thought it was getting too much water, so I just have been watering about twice a week. We have had this plant for three weeks, at this point I don't know what to do! Sincerely, Dee Baird
I just started growing curcurma longa (for the turmeric root), and have heard that its leaves will turn brown in die back in the fall. It's part of the natural growth cycle. Maybe that's what is happening to yours. It can overwinter in a warm place and should come back in the Spring.
