Camellia care
    #4558516 - 08/20/05 12:19 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I've had two Camellia Sinensis (Tea plants) plants for a couple months now. They are beggining to turn brown around the edges of the leaves. I heard this could be due to lack of humidity? If anyone has any other suggestions on how I should doctor my pretty little tea plants I would be very grateful.

I'm going to move them into a bigger pot soon and hopefully that will help.

spraying with a water bottle once a day may help

I'm growing a tea plant, it seems generally very hardy. It really likes a good feed occaisionally, you can get camelia food at any garden centres. Also, make sure it's in an acid soil, ericaceous compost is good, it's sold as a peat substitute.
I've noticed brown edges on the leaves occaisionally, I'm not sure what causes it, but it's never really done my plant any harm. It might be low humidity, you could try spraying them. Where are you growing them - how much sun do they get etc? Mine is outside, it doesn't like the English winters very much, but it loves full sun in the summer. I even got flowers last year, and it looks like flower buds are forming again...

It's growing indoors, and I definately need to change the soil. I don't think it's sandy enough.

1 do not over feed your plant, it could be excess chems. 2 lack of water AND over watering seems to do this to plants

"I definately need to change the soil. I don't think it's sandy enough."

Just thought I'd say that mine isn't in sandy soil and it's doing fine. It's just in ericaceous compost, which you can get at any garden centre.

"1 do not over feed your plant, it could be excess chems. 2 lack of water AND over watering seems to do this to plants"

Mine likes food, I don't feed it often but when I do it likes it. I wouldn't worry too much about over feeding. And I keep mine wet. I'll get you some photos tomorrow, when I am less drunk...
