Q.Lemon Tree With Yellow Spots On Leaves

Zone 93644 | Caseyjewels1 added on September 17, 2023 | Answered

Hi! I purchased this lemon tree about 3 months ago and over the last few weeks it has started developing yellow spots all over its leaves. I\\\’m not doing anything differently and I potted it in a special potting soil for citrus. Advice would be appreciated, thank you

I'm not seeing any signs of infestation. It doesn't seem like a nutritional deficiency, since you have it in specific soil.

You could check pH, but your area should be experiencing some seasonal changes at this time. This would explain yellow foliage. Leaves can fall off with a more drastic change, but it won't harm anything. It'll regrow leaves.

They are likely not hardy in your area, unless you purchased one for your area, specifically.

Here are some articles that will help:
