Curry leaf plant

nms2k(z6/CT)August 31, 2010


After 3 years, my curry leaf plant finally grew 6 inches this summer and I was so excited but suddenly, the leaves started drooping. They look healthy but in one plant especially, they look like they will fall off but when gently pulling, they don't. I can't figure out why this is so. I did water them once with the water from washing some lentils. Had read somewhere that it contains some nutrients like vitamin b etc. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to help it look better. I've had these plants for over 8 years and am attached to them even if they are only a foot tall :-(

Can you report on progress. What has happened. I am concerned about your plants. I know nothing of the curry leaf plant. I wish I did.

I bought a curry leaf plant (Murraya koenigii) from Logee's early this summer. The plant was rather small. Probably about 4 or 5 inches tall but healthy. I put it in a large pot and it get sun for about 6 hours out of the day maybe 7. It is now almost 10 inches tall! It has really like its environment. It's starting to get cool around here and we probably won't have our first frost until close to Halloween so, I've been watching the weather to make sure I bring it in before the first frost. It got down to the low 40s this week but is going to warm up a bit for then next week so the little guy gets to stay out a little longer. I hope it makes it through the winter.

Have you tried feeding it? Potted plants need continuous nutrition because the nutrients are leached out of the soil when you water.
