Young mango tree wilting

Zone Guatemala | luis_marro added on August 9, 2018 | Answered

I have a mango tree grown from seed that is 4 months old, and it leaves suddenly wilted. They normally spread to the sides but now they hang close to the main stem. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I water it when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.

It is somewhat normal for the leaves to hang, especially the new growth. From the photo it does not appear unusually wilty. But you should consider stepping up the watering, flood the pot to the brim a couple of times in order to get good saturation and depth of infiltration. Consider using a soil moisture meter to take the guess work out of watering.
