Brown tips on new Macadamia

Suzi AKA DesertDance Zone 9bMarch 7, 2013

We purchased an air layer from Ebay and arranged for pick-up. The tree is in a 5 gallon container and some of the leaf tips are brown. The soil is damp. Many of the leaves are still green.

We got it to plant in-ground and intend to purchase another for pollination.

Any suggestions will be received with gratitude!

I'll try tomorrow. I don't really have an account with an online picture thing, but I'll see... Give me a day or two.

But picture green leaves with brown tips.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to brown leaf tips on macadamia. New leaves will be OK. What kind of macadamia did you get that it needs a pollenizer? Usually macadamias are self fertile.

Good luck.
