I bought a yerba mate plant from the Logee's green house a few weeks ago and it looked very happy and healthy when I brought it home. After the first week it dropped a leaf here and there, but other then that it looked fine. but this last week and a half its dropping more than half of its leaves. That was fine at first because I could have tea, but it's a problem now, I mean looking at it, it looks really sad. I really don't want to lose it (I lost the self heal plant I got there the same time I got the yerba mate, but the tea tree looks fine) (I can't upload a photo of it, but the leaves look a little yellow and then they drop off the next day)
Our water has a lot of salt (that's what is wrong with my avocado tree) but I've been trying to water it with bottled water or with city water from family members in town (we're on well)
Should I be giving it a fertilizer? (I have plenty of that with chickens, sheep, rabbits, and a compost pile for veggie and coffee grinds).
I should mention I repotted it after I got it and it gets lots of afternoon sunlight
I have it next to lime, tea, and some little clemetines (I grew the clemetines from seed) and I'm pretty positive none of those are allopathic
Any ideas and help would be much appreciated
