I have a Pachira aquatica plant which lost all its leaves as a result of our cold winter. After pruning it back in spring It has formed lots of new buds but these havent grown hardly at all. Last year we had the same problem but once pruned back it re-budded and was up to the ceiling of our conservatory again. We did give it a dose of strong fertiliser in the early summer.
We are thinking of washing the roots and re-potting it but cant remember what soil mix to use.
Please help. Any advice gratefully received.
