Mango Leaves curling

Hi all, My Glenn mango tree was just recently planted into a pot and has since had a major growth flush. I just yesterday noticed some of the the leaves curling at the sides. The leaves look green-bronze and the tree itself is very healthy. The weather has been 100 degrees and recently it has been humid. Am I over-watering by chance?
Thanks for any advice- MGB

Curling up or down?

Up, but they are not curling closed, just slightly on both sides.

A suggestion would be to check for bugs...especially Scale? I've had this happen on my container mangoes and sprayed it with Neem/murphy oil soap concoction. Make sure you spray it in the shade so you don't burn the leaves and leave it there overnight till its completely dry before returning back in direct sun.

Carefully check the bottom of the roots and see how wet they are...or stick a thin wood dowel all the way down and remove it to see how wet the stick is? That should let you know if you're over watering it or not. Good luck!
