My kumquat tree is dying fast. When I bought it, they said, “Water it only once every 6 days, or the fruit will get heavy too fast and drop off before it is ripe.”
I paid little attention to what they said because the leaves withered within 2 days. So I watered it at least every 1-2 days, and sure enough, the fruit fell off when it was still tiny.
So then I was like, “Fine. I’ll water it once every 3 days and see what happens.”
Now I have a tree full of sad-looking tiny orange kumquats, but all of the leaves are completely withered (to the point of being crispy, but they haven’t fallen off, and neither have the fruit).
I’m now watering it once every two days. Should I cut all the fruit off? And the leaves? Should I trim the branches? Should I be watering every day? Is it impossible to maintain a balance?
Thank you in advance!
