I’ve got a really awesome sweetgum tree that I’m desperately trying to keep healthy. The leaves started to wilt but not dry out so I moved it into almost full shade and now the leaves only wilt during the heat of the day and are nice and fully opened outside of that time. As we’re going into the heat of the summer I’m worried that the heat will overcome the leaves.
My questions are:
- What is causing the wilting? Just heat or is there something deeper going on?
- What can I do to keep it as healthy as possible outside of trying to strike the balance between oxygen and water?
Thanks for any help/advice y’all can offer!
