Q.Lemon Tree Seedlings

Zone 43201 | Anonymous added on June 9, 2022 | Answered

Brought some lemon seeds from a TX tree. They are seedlings now but a couple don’t look too good. I’m not sure if it’s the sunlight (east with little shade), water or the soil. Can someone take a look at the attached photos and clue me in? Thanks, Geneva

The containers are a lot bigger than the seedling which makes it easy to overwater due to the excess soil. So try not to water the whole pot, just around the plant. Also, they need more light. Lemon trees need full sun. I would add some mulch, too, so the leaves don't touch the soil.
