Acer Maple Soil type

LynxoMay 25, 2011

Hi,

I bought a young Japanese Emperor Maple and Golden Full Moon from ebay. size, about 2' and 1', pencil thin.

The seller is not replying to my question.

Do all maples require acidic soil type? I've planted both maples in Azelea potting soil mix.

the emperor maple is doing okay but the golden full moon, the leaves have dried and withered away. they are not in full sun plus we had cloudy weather for months.

They are in 7 gallon pots.

I'm not sure if it is still alive.

thanks

It's difficult to say exactly what your problem might be related to, based on the info provided; but just by the odds I suspect it's more likely related to a combination of soil water retention and your watering habits than a pH issue.
