Death and Sun Exposure

quiverws6July 12, 2010

Two weeks ago leaves sprouted on my dwarf lime then they dried up and died,The branches turned brown and "woody" and the few blossoms I had dried up as well. Now I have new growth coming in. The new leaves literally tripled in size today! Should I trim cut off the many dead limbs?

Also should I rotate the pot every few days to maximaze sun exposure? (So as to have well balanced foliage on all sides)

Thanks so much for all your help!
