The Q&A Archives: white myoporum

Question: I have planted myoporum on a hillside for ground cover and I water it for five minutes every morning between five and seven a.m.However it is appears to be dying in several spots.Am I watering it too much or does it need more.I fertilized it about two months ago.

Answer: Melvin,
Your question entry didn't say what part of the country you are from. However based upon the details you provided my best assessment is that the myoporum is suffering from being kept wet for too much of the time. Try changing to once or twice a week at most and then allow it to dry out for a while before watering again. That plant is quite drought tolerant but can be kept too wet.
