The Lemon Tree I adopted 2 weeks ago had suffered from rain and cold weather for a Week Before taken inside the house. Then kept in the kitchen next to the glass door for sun exposure but the soil didn’t dry so I moved her to the warmest room in the house for it to dry. Realized later the maid was watering it too much. Now Iam the sole caretaker. I will add pedle tray and prune w necesssary dead pieces but Want to learn if she has disease and how to treat her? Thank you for your amazing articles, haber real them all about citrus which were very helpful.

This behavior is completely normal as a reaction to reduced lighting of being indoors. The best course of action will be to supplement lighting indoors. These will need about 200 watts per tree to produce well. Unfortunately, the fruit will not reach full potential without the extra lighting, and most window lighting still filters out some of the necessary wavelengths of light for fruit production.

Thank you for your advise. I have changed its container to a much larger pot and checked that there were no fungal infection at the bottom. I have also added pebbles to the bottom and add healthy organic turf and soil now I will also put 200 Watt lighting to the room.
