Tiny fig tree leaf color
I rooted a tiny piece of the tip of a tree I bought this spring.
I have fertilized it every two weeks with half-strength MG liquid fertilizer. I'm concerned that the leaves are staying a very pale green and are also staying very tender/soft.
Is there something I'm doing wrong, like not giving them enough sun? It's been so hot down here that the sun almost immediately wilts the leaves even if the soil is moist. Am I using the wrong kind of fertilizer on this tiny baby? It's growing and putting out new leaves. It doesn't appear to be leggy because the nodes are about 3/4" to 1", or is that a lot for such a tiny mite?
Since it's been cloudy this past week, I've put the tree, in its little clay pot, out in the yard so it would get the benefit of the sun behind the clouds and it's been a weak, pale sunshine. It's not been so brutally hot because of the rain and clouds. I've let it get rained upon, as well. It hasn't seemed to make any difference in the leaf color or texture, though.
