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?

I would check the roots of the plant. It is possible that there is some root rot on the plant which is affecting how much water the plant can take up. This article will help:
