hello, I state that I am at the very first experience. I bought a cypress plant in a nursery. I replanted it with universal soil and gravel on the bottom. the plant is very young and I immediately tried to fix some twigs, cutting some and tying others to let the light penetrate and give it a pleasant shape. 3 weeks though. the leaves and the younger branches are losing “tone”, it is very limp .. I bathe a minimum, very little, every day. should you like little water and often what am I doing to this poor unfortunate? Thanks for the advice

Dear Luca,

the reasons why your cypress suffers can be many, a lot depends on where you bought it and how it was grown in the place where you bought it.Potting and pruning should not have affected the health of your plant, so I believe that you are not the cause of the sufferings of this poor sapling. Perhaps it depends on the watering, you say that you water the plant little and often; Unfortunately, the indications are vague, as it is not a question of quantity or time lapse between waterings: your cypress should be watered when the soil is dry, and consider that it tolerates drought quite well, so even if you forget to water it for a couple of days, you shouldn’t experience any discomfort. So instead of watering it often or infrequently, water it only when the soil is dry, and always check that it is dry even deeply, by dipping a finger in the substrate: if you feel that just below the surface the soil is still fresh and moist, send it back ‘watering for a day or two.If it is not a problem with water, perhaps it could be a climate problem: cypresses are outdoor plants, which live well outdoors all year round. even in the middle of winter and also in full summer. However, it often happens to see outdoor plants kept inside supermarkets, where they often remain for several days; in practice, a small plant, accustomed to low temperatures, especially at night, is taken from the nursery in February and moved to a place with a constant 20 ° C, night and day. In this way the plant believes that spring has arrived, and behaves accordingly.When we buy the plant, knowing that it is from outside, we immediately place it outdoors, and therefore from a spring with a constant 20 ° C, the poor thing is found in winter, with low night lows. I do not know if this is your problem, but if something similar has happened, your plant has suffered a strong thermal shock, and should therefore be placed in a sheltered area, until the night lows have not risen. This treatment should be practiced only on this occasion, as the cypresses do not fear the cold, and therefore the next winter can easily spend it outside.There is also a third option: repotting has not been done correctly, and the plant is found in unsuitable soil; cypresses need a fresh and rich soil, very well drained, generally universal soil is used, lightened with a little sand or pumice stone; the soil found on the market is usually enriched with fertilizer, so it is not necessary to provide fertilizer for at least a couple of months after repotting.
