Mango plant disease

Eva18Eva18 Posts: 1


Could anyone please help me indentify the disease that's killing my mango plant and advise me what to do? Here are some photos of the plant. The leaves and stem are quite sticky as well. imageimageimage

Would appreciate any help. Thanks!


  • Hi I face similar issue. How did you manage with it?

    It's a tropical tree that needs plenty of warmth and bright sunlight as well as planting depth to send down its long tap root.    The problem may be more to do with compost quality and depth, situation, light levels and watering and feeding than a disease.

    I suggest you have a read of the info on this link and then see where you may be going wrong but I would suggest the first place to start is that it's not a houseplant.

    I grew a mango tree a few years back but, as Obelixx says, it's not a houseplant and it is very difficult to keep them healthy in this country. It really needs to be outside in a tropical climate.
