hi, I bought a lime green dwarf conifer last week, I have noticed the top has started to droop. The rest still looks green and healthy. Is this just a settling phase? I have never seen this with my other dwarf conifers.

Hello Mark.....it's not picea albertiana conica, is it?  I wonder if it's a form of spider mite, picea mite.  Bit early but if it was indoors before you bought it.   Spraying with water is the solution to this. It's a regular problem in the summer for me but dampening works very well

thanks Verdun, I'll check the name. It was outside when I bought it. I'll try spraying it with water tomorrow.
