Thread OP

I germinated the mango seed in wet cloths/napkins for about two weeks. I placed them on soil bought from Walmart. Then they kept growing and looked great. Now, however, they stopped growing all of a sudden. Some new growings curl up and turn black. The stem and leaves look nice and green. They have been like the photos for about two weeks. Any help to save these plants is greatly appreciated!!!

You may be keeping the soil too damp. Let it dry out a bit deeper into the pot before watering.

I grow mango trees here in the UK and the same thing happens to some of mine but they perk up again with new growth during the summer months.

Mangoes have a wet season and a dry season, it best not to give them to much water, they like some humidity, I spay mine with water from a spray bottle and also sometimes its necessary to have a grow light on them during the winter months as they like lots of light and make sure there are no drafts, they hate the cold but will withstand it for a short period.

Good luck with your mango tree growing Thumbs up

Mangos tend to grow in spurts. Nothing, then suddenly new growth. Keep them distinctly drier in the winter and also let dry slightly in the summer. If you can put is outside, it will respond to summer heat and sun (assuming your summers are tropical).
