Answer: Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora) is a very slow-growing tree, eventually reaching 50' in height. It grows equally well in full sun to light shade with little to copious amounts of water. It's just the nature of the plant to grow quite slowly. The roots are hightly susceptible to verticillium which is brought about by poorly draining soils. For that reason, I'd be inclined to provide less rather than more water. It isn't fussy about soil pH, and doesn't require regular feeding. Sounds as though you're doing everything right to assure a healthy tree. Keep up the good work, but expect that it will continue to grow at its own pace.
