Why is my mango tree not growing?

Depending on the variety, mango trees can go dormant for 3-5 months during the year

Why do mango trees go dormant?
Mango trees usually go through a period of dormancy when there is no visible growth activity in the mature shoots for about 3 – 5 months after flushing. The duration of dormancy varies from variety to variety. Dormancy is required for successful flowering. Low temperatures in most subtropical environments, as well as soil moisture deficits in tropical conditions, can cause dormancy. Plants are very active in the process of photosynthesis during dormancy and produce a large amount of carbohydrates for storage for use in the following season. The condition of high soil moisture, high temperature, and high N levels in tree tissues or soil breaks the dormancy.
