Drooping on New Growth of Lime Tree

Anonymous added on April 10, 2011 | Answered

I have a lime tree in a pot that is about a year old. The new growth of leaves and stems are droopy. When I give it water, they come back for a few hours, but the dirt is very soggy. Also, the clay pot has become white and sticky. I cleaned the pot and the white has come back. What can I do?
