I have a question about a mango tree that I've planted few months ago. At first, it was planted incorrectly and too deep so it took a bit more time than it should to sprout and get to sunlight. Since then, however, it was growing quite fast and nicely, until recently the upper leaves started getting yellow and a little bit curly. Older leaves that you can see on the right look much better, helthier and more green. But it's still not the ideal colour, I think. I'd like to know whether this is insufficient amount of water, or the soil is not suitable. However, for two months it had no problems and looked fine in the same soil.
And yes, it's in a bucket, which is not the best way to grow a mango, but there is no risk I think. It has holes on the bottom so the excess water flows out and I hide it if it's raining too much so it does not overflow fron top. The bucket, was colored white from inside, but these are used for carrying milk and such, so in no way it is toxic for humans, but for a mango tree? I do not know. But I will move him into an actual, bigger pot soon.
I am from Slovak Republic, living in a valley. Temperatures reach as much as 37C in shade, much more in the sun. Nights are not that cold, very rarely dropping under 15C. (Sorry for mistakes, English is my second language)
