Q.What His New Leaf Growth Supposed To Look Like On A Small Meyer Lemon Tree

Zone 93644 | Caseyjewels1 added on August 3, 2023 | Answered

I purchased a small Meyer lemon tree a couple months ago. I would say it probably gets about 6 hours of full sunlight. All of a sudden, I have a lot of new growth on the end of the original branches. Normally, I would think that\’s good, but these leaves look different than the others. They\’re a lighter shade of green, very shiny,and seem not quite as hardy as the other leaves. Is this normal for new leaf growth? It\’s been getting up to 95 to 105° here and I water it usually every day to every other day.

It can be normal from the heat, but make sure that the soil doesn't remain wet, as well. Let the soil dry out down to at least 2 or 3 inches between waterings. Other than this, it could be an actual nitrogen deficiency. Here are some articles that will help:
