|My 4 month old Lychee seedling needs help!
I started growing the Lychee tree in regular soil, and after about 2 months i desided that i wanted to try to grow it hydroponically.
Ever since its first leaves, the tips of the leaves are turning slowly brown and crispy. It grows under a growing light at room temperature. New leaves are coming and it seem to be having it great except for the leaves turning brown.
I included some pictures for you to look at. Please help me! I really love my plant and dont want to lose it! And it seems that the leaves are also turning a lighter shade of green almost yellow-ish color. What does it mean!!?? :O

|How is your water quality? What type of lights? Are you fertilizing it/with what? All these questions need to be answered in order for someone to help you. I know nothing about hydroponics or house plants, but my guess is hard water or over feeding. Hopefully someone will come along that knows more.|

|I know nothing about hydroponics either, but Lychee trees need full sun and lean soil to thrive.
Lychee get to be a large tree. Mine is 9 years old, 15ft. high and wide. You really aren't going to be able to grow it hydroponically for long anyway. I would recommend you pot it up in some good fresh potting soil, and get it outside into the sunshine.
