Question From: B. Pierce - Yoakum, Texas, United States
Q: I repotted my 2 month old African tulip trees two days ago. All appeared to be fine until we got a cold front dropping the temp to 48 degrees F at night and mid 80's during the day. The plants were under covered porch area. This morning the leaves are really droopy. Not sure what to do with them now. Should I take keep in the sun or out of the sun. The ones that were in a more protected area outside appear to be fine.

A: This tree is native to equatorial Africa and I know nothing about it, But according to a quick google search it should not be outdoors until it reaches 2 feet tall and direct sun may burn the tender leaves of young plants, Also the soil must be kept moist at all times. I would do a more thorough search for information on care and culture. Have fun. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
