Q.Citrus Tree Saplings: One Not Growing Straight, One Losing Leaves

Zone Mechelen | Lvadeb added on January 11, 2022 | Answered

I planted some lemon seeds half a year ago, and I have a question for two of them; one, the smallest of them is losing its leaves. Its leafs have brown spots (see image). They had some kind of insects on them, but I managed to kill those. However, it is still losing the leaves. Is there any way to save it? The other one, the largest, was growing quite quickly, and was leaning against the window. When I turned it around after a month or so, it couldn’t stand upright anymore. Is there a way that I can help it gain ‘strength’ to grow up, or will it just do it naturally after some time?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. Indoors, it is common for citrus to need extra lighting indoors. This, some feeding every few months, and careful watering habits will ensure good health.
