Three weeks this tree was 8 feet tall, now it's barely 3 feet. In the last 3 weeks I watered the leaves (which I learned is a no-no) and I've noticed there are ants on the plant, some spiders, but no spider mites as far as I can tell. This abyssinian isn't in great soil, but it was planted 9 months ago and was thriving until the last few weeks.
Why are the leaves slumping off to the side? And why is new growth now outward and not upward? How do I fix?
In San Diego, zip 92127 (zone 9b or 10, depending on who you ask)
Thanks!! This is driving me crazy.
