So, my plant has started to look sad. Any help would be appreciated and since this thread is all about raising phlebophylla I thought this was a very suitable place to ask, as others could learn from my experience also.
It has appeared to be pretty happy at my place until the last week or so. Now it has phyllodes starting to brown and it has appear to get worse over the last few days with phyllodes getting browner further up the trunk.
I water it with rainwater almost every day, (every day when hot), and gave it a little sprinkle of osmocote native fertilizer shortly after getting it about 3-4 months ago.
We have just gone through 4 days of 40 degree weather and over that time even with water he has started to look a little sad. So any ideas as to whether you think this is "normal" heat stress or is there something else that I need to do for him? Does he need to be re-potted or something like that? It gets full sun between about 8am and 4pm at the moment, outside of those times it is shaded.

Any if anyone can shed some light on phleb's self sterility or fertility when it comes to setting seed I would appreciate it as I am no more educated on that as I was when I asked the question in the post above this one.
If I can't find any answers in the next few days this sucker is going to go in the ground and future consequences be damned.
