Drought killed acacia?

Recommended Posts

Hey, im pretty sure the drought killed this little guy. Is it worth keeping it around?

There is still green on the stem

Looks pretty crispy:o but I'd leave it and see if it might recover. While ever there's green,  there's still hope .

 

Also I think because the plant is in a pot, you'd have to say it was killed by neglect, rather than the drought, since it's relying on you for everything 

:P:P

Very very true, i neglected it thinking they were very drought hardy, i thought what little rain/ moisture there was would keep it kicking... i have learnt my lesson

Lazarus, Phoenix, etc.. Lots to choose from. 

 

I'm noticing the difference between pot and in-ground gardening having just dug up my ethno garden and moved house. Even kept out of the sun,  it's been that dry that a strong breeze will dry some plants out from transpiration. 

I guess in a pot the drying happens from all angles. 

Good luck with the resurrection; it may help to remove some of the deadest leaves.

Some of the leaves didn't quite go crispy or the recovery is working. Either way, things are looking up
