Lime tree sick :(

Marty1000000January 4, 2014

I live in the tropics and have a lime tree which usually flourishes. I love it and use the fruit from it for cooking and the occasional cocktail :)

It is not doing so well, I've tried to research what the reason is but as an amateur I don't know specifically if it is fungal or insect driven...

Rather than a vague explanation I've attached photos to show the symptoms exactly.

I would dearly like to save the tree if possible as I'm very fond of it.

Thanks for all your help!

Possible strands of fungus?

Hi Marty
I have a lime tree that seems to have a similar problem to yours. So would be interested to hear what you found and if it has successful.
