Branch tip growth points lost....
Hi everyone, just wanted to ask has anyones plant done this...I've noticed this summer on several plants that the growth tips have browned, the tiny leaves seemed to get welded together with what looked like the sap, you know it dries to that shiny brown hard stuff? No bugs present, it just seemed to glue up the growth points so not many new leaves have formed lately.
Bonus points are that as a consequence, I can now see many more growth points are forming in a ring around the lost tips.....so I should get even more branches next year.
