Leaves on My Lime Tree Are Bright Yellow

My lime tree is not dropping leaves and appears to be growing, but I don't think bright yellow is a healthy color for a lime tree. What can I do?

Yellow leaves are more often than not a sign of overwatering. Feel the soil around your plant to see if it is too wet. If so, stop watering. Plant stress can be another factor, such as a sudden change in temperature.
