Q.My Little Kaffir Lime Tree Isn’t Doing Well

Anonymous added on May 4, 2024 | Answered

It’s about half a foot high, it was grown from a cutting of a big tree (around a year old). Recently it’s been dropping leaves like hot potatoes, and I know it’s not supposed to be doing that. Even the tiny ones are falling. I thought it was a water problem (soil felt dry), so I gave it maybe a cup of water two days ago and since then it’s dropped about four more leaves. It doesn’t even have that many in the first place, so I’m afraid soon it’ll be bare. HELP

It's likely getting too much or too little water. The soil needs to be moist, but let the soil start to dry out between waterings. Also make sure it is getting as much sun as possible. Here are more care tips:
