Wintering a Lime Tree

Anonymous added on November 22, 2010 | Answered

I live in Boaz, Alabama and bring my lime tree indoors every year when the weather gets cold, placing it in the basement with a grow light over the tree and the leaves always fall off. What can I do to correct this?

It is probably lacking the humidity it needs. Either mist it daily or set it on a tray of pebbles to increase humidity. Also, make sure that you never let the soil go dry. This will also cause leaf drop.
