I think you have two problems, the first is cowdung. That is way to much fertilizer - I think you may have killed your tree. What happened to the main tree trunk? If this was a graphed plant, I'm afraid the only thing you have left are sprouts off the root stalk.

I m sure its not killed it is sprouting but growth is very slow. you are right i have covered 6-7 inch stalk with cowdung and sand.i have planted many plants in cowdung directly and they are doing good .

When and why did you replant it? Please describe the light it has received. What is your watering routine?

How long has it been in direct sun? Since you got it 4 months ago or just recently? How dry does the soil get before you water?
