Tropical lemon trees

Zone Port douglas tropical queensland | Suemick added on January 31, 2016 | Answered

I recently brought a dwarf tropical lemon and put it in a pot. It has lost most of its leaves and is looking a bit sick. It's in a sunny position with good soil. It has fruit on it. What else can I do to give it a good start?

Make sure that the soil is evenly moist but not soggy. The pot should have a good drainage hole.
Check the soil before watering instead of watering on a schedule.
