I am seeking advice from people who have experience growing Michelia figo either indoors or outdoors, especially from those located in my immediate geographical area. A plant that was acquired in February managed to bloom and put on some new growth in the months following. Though not lush, it was doing fairly well. However it has slowly declined in the past month or so. It's leaves are turning brown around the edges and dropping off. What little new growth, leaves and buds, starts off looking green and healthy but subsequently die off. A healthy, greenhouse grown plant that was added to my collection last week is now beginning to show the same symptoms. This leads me to conclude the problem is the result of low humidity in my semi-enclosed growing environment. The addition of a pan of water underneath the plant has had little effect. Misting would not be particularly effective or practical. Not sure I would go to the trouble of constructing a tent. Time to consider a more suitable species? Have you had a similar problem? Please share your thoughts on growing this wonderful plant.
