Young Lemon Tree Issue


thatcrazytoaster added on October 24, 2015 | Answered

I have a young lemon tree. It has a sticky substance (odorless, tasteless, clear) that has started on the leaves. Can you advise please? Also, I got Neptune's Harvest Fish and Seaweed Fertilizer (nitro 2%). How often do I fertilize and should I dilute that in water? I'm getting conflicting info online and can't find specifics on "how to" -THANK YOU!

The sticky substance is call Honeydew. It is the secretions of insects.

Treat the tree with Neem OIl. Neem Oil is organic and safe for people, pets and bees.

I have listed links to help you with both in infestation, growing and fertilizer application.
