Q.Lime Tree Leaves Shriveled and Yellow

Anonymous added on November 10, 2010 | Answered

I have a lime tree I got early last spring. It is is in a large pot. It produced this year but now all the leaves are shriveling up and some are yellowing. At first it was just new growth, but it seems to be spreading to all the leaves. The container pot drains well. We did receive a lot of rain, however. Is it from too much moisture? I do not see any signs of insects.

This is likely a nutrient deficiency. With all the extra rainfall, it is likely the nutrients were washed out of the soil. This is common for plants in containers. Make sure you have your lime tree on a regular schedule for fertilizer.
