New growth turning black and dying


Reaction score
Hi all,
my Phillyrea new growth is turning black and dies, what can it be?
The plant is in my greenhouse recovering a transplant, shaded and misted. It would not survive the summer outside I must say.
Too much water? Or too much sun coming through from the side maybe?
Temperatures are still quite high, mediterranean climate.
My wild olives in the same conditions are not experiencing this and are growing very fast instead

Possibly a fungal infection of some sort like anthracnose.
