So I got the orange tree from my boyfriend to take care of, and the leaves are turning yellow. I put some fertilizer sticks in the soil. It is potted, he gets sun from sunrise until 3pm. What should I do?

Make sure to test the soil pH, and nutrient content. If the ratios are not correct, and there is more or less of one than there should be, then it will result in the problems that you see.
Another thing to consider is the size of the container. Ultimately, they will be happy in about 15 to 20 gallons, or so. Even then, you will find that you need to lift for root pruning every few years.
Soil moisture is important, as well. Overwatering will cause these symptoms.
