Lemon Tree Problem


Alicehhi2 added on December 31, 2016 | Answered

My lemon tree is in a pot. The leaves are getting yellow and many have fallen. I live in coastal South Carolina. Any advice? I did a web search and the leaves look like "chimera". Thanks.

The photos look more like a nutrient deficiency, especially of calcium, magnesium, or zinc. Providing these nutrients, or a citrus fertilizer that also contains micronutrients, should help your plant's leaves green up. Adding a good compost is another option. Please see the following articles:
