RE: leaves turning white

Hi, probably too much sun too quickly(sunburn). Move it to a shaded spot for about a week and then start moving it into gradually more sun each day until it's acclimated. The burned leaves probably will fall off, but it'll soon start leafing out again. Hope this helps. Tim
