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