I bought a curry leaf plant that I have planted in a pot. It is about 1.5ft high and quite dense at the top. Do I need to harvest it for it to branch out or is it too early and I should leave it alone for now? I am not sure how old the plant is. I live in tropical area in Brunei.
You can pinch off the tips of the plant to promote more growth.
You can prune off the old growth in the early spring to the lowest bud at the base of the plant.
Snip off the developing flower stalks in the summer, this will promote more leafy greens.
You can snip and trim throughout the summer for use and neat looking plants.
I have a curry leaf plant that I am trying to grow indoors in Flagstaff, AZ (around 7000 feet elevation and dry). The seedling was obtained from Phoenix, and has grown in height considerably over the last year and a half. However, we only get new set of leaves on the crown, and when that happens, the older leaves and stems fall away. Is there something the matter, and something I could do to make the growth more "normal" I attach three pictures, one of the healthy crown, one of the entire plant, and the third of a new growth near the root. I left the plant outdoors last night, and this appears to be the result! Thanks
We did not receive the images.
Your plant may not be receiving enough sunlight in an indoor location.

Thank you for the picture. I notice that this is in clay soil. This has a tendancy to be a little alkaline. This plant likes the be slightly on the acidic side. You can add iron sulfate to help here. Also, it would seem that the humidity is a little low. It would help to mist and water the plant in very early morning while the sun is still low. It could be that your compost has an infection, which the iron sulfate will correct as well. Make sure to add just a little bit of dolomitic lime to the soil to keep the pH stable, as a quick pH swing can also cause these symptoms.

Yellowing leaves could be a watering issue; too much or too little moisture.
It could also be light issues, disease or pests.

I bought 3 curry leaf plants in November 2917. They were doing well until recently - in fact started having a lot of fresh growth from around February. Then a couple of weeks ago one of the plants started dropping - it has lost all the new growth and most of its leaves. The other two plants are showing signs of the same thing happening. All three plants have been on a table by a sunny patio door. I have attached photos of all three. Please advise.
I believe this will need a larger container pretty soon. In such a small container, it is likely to run out of nutrients very quickly, which would produce the symptoms that are happening now.
I would repot into a larger pot, and add compost to the soil. This will feed the plant. When you start noticing signs of this happening again, just add more compost to the top, some dolomitic lime, and worm castings if you would like. This will boost it up again.
Container gardening can be tedious, but it has its obvious advantages as well. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/curry/growing-curry-leaf.htm
