Hey my mango tree has had drooping leaves for the past two weeks and nothing I try seems to work. We have had a drip line problem recently wich is being fixed but otherwise I dont know what to do.

Hmmm. It looks really pale. Too much water I would guess. If it was in full sun I would recommend watering every other day this time of year, but if its in a very shady spot, as it appears, twice a week should be good.

It won't recover right away. Overwatering creates a nutrient deficiency, notably an iron deficiency. It can take months for a plant to start looking better. Just keep watering correctly. Of course, as it gets cooler even less water will be needed. In the middle of winter, it will need once a week or possibly just every 2 weeks.

Several of the Home Depots in Mesa carry them on and off. You might want to call ahead to check.
