Leathery Leaves on Basjoo

swmcduff(8/Portland, OR)July 12, 2006

I have around 50 Basjoos at my house. I'd say 10 - 15% of them have very thick leathery leaves. They get the same water, soil, fertilizer, sun that all of the others get. Has anyone experienced the same problem? They're very ugly. I'm wondering if there's something I can do to change them.

Not sure what you mean by leathery. strong leaves are good.make sure you give them enough water they do come from the tropics where it is hot and rainy. the plant like many are mostly water as you have noticed when you trim one.
