Nectarine Plant Problems

John Kelleher asked 4 years ago

I have grown a nectarine plant from seed and up until a couple of days ago it was fine, now however it appears as if it is dying. all the leaves have wilted. What could possibly have caused this? It isn’t overwatered (or underwatered) in my opinion, and is on a southfacing window. I have noticed sticky beads on the top leaves that look like water droplets but nothing else. I did repot it about a fortnight ago, could this be the cause. I was really proud of having grown this plant. Is there any hope for it?

It may have dried out or was too wet and the roots rotted. 

Move it to a bright but not sunny spot and only water when the top of the compost is slightly dry.

If the stem is loose in the pot, vine weevil grubs might be involved.
