Hi everyone, Hope your new year is going well so far and all your plants are thriving in this warm & humid(ish) summer! My Acacia acuminata (var small seed) seems to be struggling a lot - most of its leaves are drying out, turning orange/yellow and falling off. Just as the last few leaves fall out, it miraculously manages to produce one or two new green ones, before those end up drying out and falling off too. It doesn't seem to be able to retain any of its old leaves while simultaneously producing new ones. Any advice on what could be causing this & what I should do differently? A bit of info on its growing condition: 1. Grown outdoors in full morning & a bit of arvo sun in Sydney, Aus. 2. Its in a laundry basket with lots of holes cut out (air pruning). 3. Soil medium is cactus/succulent mix with perlite. Compost on top. 4. Soil dries out pretty quickly but I replenish it with moisture every one or two days. 5. Using a range of fertilizers, normally Seasol & Powerfeed, and sometimes Maxigrow - every week(ish) during spring/summer. 6. Plant was purchased in mid-Nov (looked healthy when it arrived). Any advice on how to grow this wonderful plant is much appreciated! Thank you
