disease or overwater or not enough or fungus or what

norman2012June 29, 2013

This fig tree is two years old and the leaves are turning yellow and falling off. Its a hardy chicago.

The temperatures have been in the 90s but Ive been giving it alot of water,, at least I thought I was. Can anyone look at this picture and tell me if it looks like not enough water or too much or maybe a fungus?

last year it withstood almost a month straight of over 100 degree weather.

I would back off the water and see how they do. Lift the pots and if they feel light then water, if not than hold off on the water. I have fig trees too but mine are in the ground. You maybe could even try a bigger pot with some fresh potting soil and see if that helps. Good luck. Keep us posted.

The fruit forum might have some good advice. Lot of fig growers over there.

How long has it been in that pot? Could be root bound. If so, no amount of water or fertilizer will help.

There's a forum just for figs. Try posting your pic over there. They really know their stuff.
