My wife says it may be too much sun, just leave it there and it will adapt.

2018-05-11 00:23:59 UTC  

Has it been at a Home Depot or a garden center of some sort?

2018-05-11 00:26:00 UTC  

I didn't even realize this garden server was here! Awesome

2018-05-11 00:27:52 UTC  

I was told to try Ortho Fungicide. But it was purchased at a local nursery.

2018-05-11 01:50:47 UTC  

Don't use fungicides!!!

2018-05-11 01:51:33 UTC  

Fungus plays a very important part in the soil food web and messing with it is just asking for problems

2018-05-11 04:00:53 UTC  

It’s consumed my tree so fast, I’m afraid whatever this is will take over the entire tree in the next week or two.

2018-05-11 04:02:46 UTC  

Japanese maples are supposed to be a hardy tree. 🙄 I’m now nervous about planting the rest of our shrubs and flowers. Ughh lol

2018-05-11 10:02:28 UTC  

It's honestly probably just heat

2018-05-11 10:03:55 UTC  

It doesn't look like anything fungal to me, nor does it look like a nutrient deficiency

2018-05-11 10:05:51 UTC  

It doesn't look like anything is eating it either

2018-05-11 10:07:47 UTC  

What does the rest of the plant look like? If it's even all over like that I'd have to agree with Alfred up there- probably too much sun

2018-05-11 10:20:18 UTC  

@MaryJuneVoss - SC#2855 do you use chemical fertilizers? The more I look at it it looks burned(like a chemical kind of burn)

2018-05-11 10:23:06 UTC  

@MaryJuneVoss - SC That top picture is sunburn. No question.

2018-05-28 17:53:10 UTC  

@MaryJuneVoss - SC give it some miracle grow and it will perk right up. The problem is the roots have not adjusted yet and are not naturalizing into the soil. Looks like not enough water as well

2018-05-28 18:04:55 UTC  

Reeeee don't poison your soil with that garbage

2018-05-28 18:05:41 UTC  

It’s done wonders for my Pine and fir trees

2018-05-28 18:05:56 UTC  

How often do you have to feed it?

2018-05-28 18:06:25 UTC  

It literally kills everything in your soil so you have to keep using their chemicals

2018-05-28 18:06:47 UTC  

It may as well be named "miracle soil sterilizer"

2018-05-28 18:06:56 UTC  

Well to get them established, I would water them with it every other week for 2 years. It’s at my parents and they were able to become established and they do fine on their own now

2018-05-28 18:07:17 UTC  

I didn’t know that but I haven’t had any problems, maybe that’s how I have had problems growing seedlings then

2018-05-28 18:07:25 UTC  

Like less than an inch tall

2018-05-28 18:07:56 UTC  

Yeah man it messes with the soil food web big time

2018-05-28 18:08:10 UTC  

If I didn’t use it on all those trees I planted they would have died like the ones my dad planted haha

2018-05-28 18:08:21 UTC  

I suppose your right

2018-05-28 18:08:45 UTC  


2018-05-28 18:09:05 UTC  

But the soil was clay anyway, so it isn’t idealistic to grow in

2018-05-28 18:10:08 UTC  

Most soil has clay in it. If you feel the need to feed the soil something just make some compost tea or something

2018-05-28 18:10:18 UTC  

Feed the soil not the plants...

2018-05-28 18:11:21 UTC  

Seriously though all these plants did fine for years without us

2018-05-28 18:11:43 UTC  

Yea, I’m impatient

2018-05-28 18:11:43 UTC  

The more you put your hand in it to "fix" things the more it's going to mess up

2018-05-28 18:12:02 UTC  

That's oftentimes the problem haha

2018-05-28 18:21:24 UTC

2018-05-28 18:21:41 UTC  

I HIGHLY recommend reading this book

2018-05-28 18:23:58 UTC  

You have to understand that your soil is alive and that there is an entire food chain maintaining the balance

2018-05-28 18:25:12 UTC  

(Or there's supposed to be if we'd stop messing with it by constantly trying to "correct" problems we think exist)

2018-06-15 14:06:36 UTC  

This is an awesome method
