Medium_image1 Good day! I live in Dubai. I was told to water my Murraya only 1 time. Still, she's loosing her leaves. Help!

Summers in Dubai are really challenging. Temperatures go often above 40 degrees Celsius and humidity exceeds often 60%. I purchased this beautiful Murraya from Dubai Garden Center, and they told me she's an outdoor plant, and I should water it only 1 time per day.
The truth is that lately she's not doing very well. She still has a lot of new small green leaves, but if she continues to loose her leaves, I'm afraid I'll loose her completely. :(
Shall I water it more often? Can you help me, please?
Thank you so much in advance!
Sincerely,
Rita Soficaru

Answer: Hi Rita,
Thank you for your question.
Murrayas are an outdoor plant and they like full sun and well drained soil.
They don’t like too much water around the roots it might be a good idea to gradually tone back the watering, it could be causing the problem.

Kind Regards
