How to care for Cinnamomum Kotoense leaves curl

Many times, the yellow and curly leaves of cinnamomum kotoense are caused by water, light, insect pests and other factors.  


Too much or too little water can cause leaves to curl, so we need to look carefully to see if the soil is wet or dry. If it's wet, we'll put it in the sun. If it's too dry, we have to water it, but be sure to water it thoroughly. Also, we can drench it with beer mixed with water, but not too much. That's because there's something good about beer, but too much is not so good either. When the temperature is high, we should spray water on the leaves, which can effectively prevent the leaves from curling. If the leaves have been curled up, we should also do it in this way.


When the light is thinner, the leaves curl! This is because it is a light-loving plant, lack of light is like the loss of their own food, so we have to put it in the sun or in a good light.

3.Insect pest

If there is an insect pest or disease, its leaves will also curl. Generally, scale insects are the main species. To deal with scale insects, we can take the following measures:

We can use washing powder to make water, and we need about 400 to 600 times his liquid. In addition, we can also use a certain pesticide spray, but it is not suitable for home, because of the strong taste and some toxicity.

In addition, the curly leaf curl is also a big cause. We can use trichlorfon crystals, it needs to be 90 percent concentration, liquid multiples of 800. There are other ways you can do it, you can do it in the form of dimethoate cream, but this thing is at 40 percent liquid multiple of a thousand.

In addition, poor air circulation is also likely to cause the peace tree leaves to curl. Therefore, it is best to put the Cinnamomum Kotoense leaves in the air circulation place for maintenance.

If you don't water enough, you just need to water the right amount.

2. Sufficient light

All plants in nature need sufficient sunlight to keep growing, and the Cinnamomum Kotoense is no exception. Some flower friends do not know how to make the peace branch black and dry. In fact, the most important thing is enough light. If the plant is often left in a dark environment, the plant may grow too slowly, its branches dry and turn black.

Solution: Dark stems caused by insufficient light naturally need to be placed in a sunny environment, so that the peace tree and sunlight fully contact. Especially in winter, make sure your plants are exposed to the sun often and never in a cool place.

3. Disease control

If the tree is diseased, the branches of the plant will also become black and dry.

Dark spots appear on the leaves, and then the plant slowly Withers and dries up. If left unchecked, the plant slowly dies.

Cinnamomum Kotoense likes the nourishment of fertilizer, so we must pay attention to the growth of fertilizer in time. Apply compound fertilizer once a month in the spring, preferably phosphorus and potassium fertilizer, to keep the plant in good condition. As for autumn, you also need the right amount of topdressing. One is to add nutrients, and the other is to make sure the plants have enough nutrients to survive the long winter.

5.Appropriate pruning

Cinnamomum Kotoense was really easy to grow, but it was so simple that there were often branches that grew too big. Foliage is good, but in excess it causes the plant to become too dilute and uneven in nutrients. It is better for the plant to grow only if we trim the plant in time. Trim away overgrown branches, sickly branches, and yellow and dry branches.
