Hi there, my boyfriend has a potted Sophora molloyi dragons gold kowhai tree that has been looking sickly for the past couple of weeks. It has always been a sparse spindly kind of tree with very thin trunk and branches, and is only small being about 1 meter wide and 0.5 meter high. It was repotted into a larger pot nearly 12 months ago and seemed to be doing well until recently. The leaves have almost all turned yellow and the thin branches seem to be wilting a lot. My boyfriend thinks this started after he didn’t water it for a week, but has been watering it daily since then with no obvious benefit. Is our tree salvageable??

Hi Jessica,

Hard to say, most likely has dried out and as a consequence all leaves are dropping (this can take a while to take effect after being left died out) as all the leaves have gone know the plant doesn’t require the water it would normally need, so now you are most likely given it too much water!! I would suggest you stop watering and wait and see what happens over the next two months (plants normally don’t put on a lot of growth during the summer (you might need to water if the soil dries out again but this will be minimal. If the plants deteriorates further (branches die of it would have dried out for too long and will not come back)

Thanks
