Q.25 Yr Orange Tree Drooping, No Spots No Bugs Water 48 Hrs
Orange tree was fine one month ago. I left for 2 weeks and came back to a tree that was drooping and looked like it was trying to die. I water every 48 hrs because Of the high temps, between 95-105. But that is normal where I live. It isn’t hotter than normally. Last year the oranges were huge (grapefruit size) this year the size of limes ! No spots and no bugs, at least not any visible. I love this tree and need help and advice !

Was anyone watering it while you were gone? If not, that may be the issue. The roots were used to constant water and suddenly, none.
Continue to water as you have been, if that is how you watered last year. Normally, fruit trees do better watered less frequently, but more deeply, to encourage deep roots.
