Dwarf Oro Blanco HELP!
I am panicking about whether I killed my Oro Blanco tree. I also have a bearss lime and a sweet naval orange, both of which are doing beautifully and producing fruit for the record. My oro blanco is not so good. I usually buy my dwarf trees bearing fruit but this one I decided to take a chance on since it was the only oro blanco that I could find and it appeared to be in excellent health.
A few days ago we had a very big windstorm swept through my area and it knocked over my oro blanco tree, the other two were still standing. I noticed probably within an hour or two and stood it back up. I have been watering only when the top inch or two of soil get dry (about every 3-4 days depending on weather). Two days ago I went outside to check on my trees and ALL of the oro blanco leaves were curled in on themselves and looking dry and shriveled though the leaves were still green. I ran water through the soil for about 3-5 minutes because I heard the salt content can build up when it gets dry. I also read the leaves would start to fall off over the next day or two. The leaves are almost all gone and I am worried I somehow killed my little friend.
The branches are all green still and have a slight amount of bend. Any tips? Will it survive? How long will it take for the foliage to come back? What should I be doing in the meantime? I should also note I bought all my dwarf trees from Home Depot and they are about 3-3.5 feet high with an inch diameter trunk, 5g pot, I haven't repotted any of them yet. I can take the tree back for a refund but I know they will just throw it away when they get it and I would like to give it a fighting chance before I send it to it's grave.
