Fatsia problem - new growth collapsing


By Bernard

There seems to be a problem with one of our Fatsias. As you can see from the photo, all the new growth is collapsing. I don't think it's lack of water as the rest of the plant and other plants in the bed are doing well and we've had plenty of rain. If anyone has any clue as to what's wrong and hopefully a solution to the problem, I welcome any suggestions.

On plant Fatsia japonica




Hi Bernard,
It's getting too much feed, keep watering down. It will recover when it is drier again.

Thank you for the good news Doctorbob. We've had days of miserable drizzle here and Fatsia doesn't like it any more than I do. I'm learning all the time.

How do I say thanks?
