Q.My Red Lime Potted Plant Started To Die At The Top. It Has Plenty Of Water So What Could Be The Problem?
My 5’tall red lime tree started drying up from the top and now is about 2 1/2 ft tall. I have Osmacote in the soil and good composted soil. I don’t know what to do.

The new leaves show there is a soil issue. The veins are green but the leaf is yellow. Check your label instructions for the pH of the soil. It may need more acidic soil. I don't find much information on a red lime other than it is an acidic fruit. Make sure it isn't getting too much water. Lift the root ball out and check for healthy roots. If they are dark and mushy you need to repot right away in fresh soil and a clean container.
