Q.Indoor Lemon Tree Has Started Dropping Leaves

Zone Lemont, Illinois | Anonymous added on December 29, 2021 | Answered

I planted it into a larger pot and moved it to where it could get more light. It is in a drafty spot near the front door so it may be the cause. So now how do I save the tree?? Can it be saved?

The tree is adjusting to getting less sunlight indoors. While indoors, make sure you reduce the amount of water a little since it will have fewer leaves while avoiding the soil from getting dry. Water if the top soil feels dry. To get more sunlight, choose a southern facing location, consider using grow lights and increasing the inside humidity. Try not to expose the tree to temperatures below 45F. Over and under watering can also promote leaf drop. Drill more holes in a pot if you see that water is not draining well or consider using fresh new better draining soil.
