I have grown a chrinodendron successfully before in alkaline soil in a flower bed. Then I discovered this plant should be in acidic soil. Now I have one in a pot in erracacious compost. The leaves are curled and odd shapes and the followers are very pasty looking in comparison to the bright red I had before. I feed the plant every week. Should I just plant it in the ground? DW

    If the other one grew well then plant it out, they are big shrubs I don’t  think they do well in pots.

  • Yes I thought it’s probably the easiest solution. I just can’t understand the reaction of the two plants - the opposite of what should have suited them.
