But by February all its leaves had curled, dried up, and fallen off. It was in a plastic pot on the floor, and we have radiant heat. Not sure if that caused the problem.
I've pruned it back heavily, repotted it, treated it for what looked like cottony cushion scale (using alcohol on a qtip and then spraying with Organocide.) I've moved it outside (we live in DC, where daytime temps this week are in the 60s; nights in 50s/40s.)
When I scrape the bark, I see some green. But it sure looks dead. Any thoughts on what might bring it back? Is it still too cold for it to be outside?
It had such an amazing fruiting season; I'd hate to lose it now. Thanks!!!
