my mangroves keep loosing thier leaves. the tree is still growing. it produces new leaves as soon as the other ones fall off. the branches are getting longer. the new leaves upen up then fall off. they look fine. the mangroves are only a month old, but have full root systems.

any ideas?

thanks,

G~

I've read that mangroves are sensitive to salt build up on their leaves. That you should use a spray bottle and rinse deposited salt off the leaves.
Yea I read that also! If I understand it correctly? The Mangroves will draw the saltwater up through the stalk and excrete the salt out through the leaves? If the salt is left on the leaves to long it will damage them? I have herd that they should be washed off with a mist of fresh water every other day?:eek:
