Japanese Maple with curling leaves. I have a 3 year-old Japanese Maple which we decided to keep in a container in the house for one more year. We transplanted to a larger container with Miracle Gro potting soil. The leaves are turning brown starting at the outer tips and are curling. It is in a south facing bay window and had been very healthy until now. Can anyone give us some advice? granmudr

Anyway... how much were the roots disturbed? I've had some plants that would react to a transplant the same way. This may not be your case, but the plant is in a new home and is setting new roots,and the rest of the plant may suffer for a while untill the plant balances out...
Sometimes I wake up grouchy,other days I just let her sleep,while I'am outside in the garden she is counting sheep. (%$#@%*#&@) sorry honey,I didn't say that...honey put down that hoe... :(
Japanese maples cannot be grown indoors. Also make sure that you are not overwatering. Make sure your pot is dry between each watering. I would recommend planting your maples under a shade type tree to potect it from the direct Sun after approximately 1 p.m.
