Carex Amazon Mist

B3B3 Posts: 27,007

I bought a carex



Amazon mist in a small pot a few weeks ago and forgot about it. It had dried out a bit but have kept it watered since I noticed it.

The ends of the leaves are becoming brown and coiled.Is it meant to do this or is it dying? 

The pic gives the impression that it is a lot bigger than it actually is.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    You're right tetley  I wasn't sure where I wanted it but it's better off in the ground.

    Carexes like a good bit of moisture too. I've had them without too many problems in containers, but they need plenty of watering.  One that I have in a very small raised bed was looking a bit like yours as it was dry. I trimmed it and watered it and it's improved again.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
