I purchased 3 Japanese blueberry trees. They came on a 25 gallon container and replanted on a 60 gallon planters. After 6 or 7 months one of the trees started losing leaves. I noticed that the leaves started diyng off from the tip. Eventually it died completely. So I lost the first one. Now the second tree started developing the sames condition. It was beutiful two months ago but now i don't know if it will survive. I water the trees every week. I don't think is lack of water. Bedsides,I water all the trees at the same time and one was fine and the other died. Any idea whats wrong with my trees?? I live in Miami btw.

When you put your plant in a larger container of new soil, you put it in acidic potting soil. Japanese blueberry trees are more tolerant of neutral to slightly alkaline soils than similar evergreen trees. I would test the discharge water with a pH meter and also test the EC using a TDS meter to know for sure. Take some discharge water to a local grow shop and ask them to test the EC and pH and then post the results.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
