Gotten cuttings last spring,the grasshoppers kept on eating them up,and they allways came back,but never gotten bigger then about 12-18"kept them in pots on the deck.Now I hope to keep them alive till next spring in the house.The second week in, they started loosing some leaves,all 4 are now almost bald exept for the crown with about 6-10 leaves.Noticed yesterday,that one brugs had what I thought 2 curled leaves neatly rolled,checked today and they are firm and look like pea pods,what are those?
Seed pods? Flower bud's? Have no room left near any window,or grow light,all taken with orchids and tropical fruits.Do I keep the brugs wet? Dry? Or cut them back,before they get to big?

I'd dissect one to see what it is.

Ks, check out leaf minors/miners..These bugs will cause leaf curl..btw, brugs are very poisonous, so wash hands after handling. Got my brug in Mar of 2003..the tree was about 7" tall and now about 5'...I too am running out of room, lol, but luv those plants. Keep plant cool in winter, away from heating source since they're magnets to mites. I mist daily for prevention. Toni
