Indoor Mini Orange Tree Problems
I have a mini orange tree that will only get between 4 and 6 feet max. It is currently 20 inches tall. The problem started immediately after I got it from the nursery. It immediately, dropped new green fruit and leaves within 24 to 48 hours. I suspected that the nursery, screwed up as the tips of some leaves turned brown at the same time. I immediately went to arid recovery and heavy misting. The leaves stopped dropping in mass. But they still drop about once every 2 to three weeks now. I have about a good dozon leaves left.
The tree gets about 3 to 4 hours of direct sun in winter and 4 to 6 hours in the summer. Indirect light is upwards of 5 to 8 hours. I also have added a simple common grow light as the plant appeared to need more lighting.
The problem is no new growth at all. No new leaves nothing. Where stem lost all leaves are now dead.
I am at a loss of what to do. I have done what I can but I think there was a royal screw up by the nursery when they repotted the plant for me as it needed to be repotted as it originally looked under watered and new dropped fruit though green and black were dry stressed.
I moved to light watering and heavy misting as it is an indoor only plant. The temps range in winter indoors from 60Â° to 80Â° depending on weather. Colder when there is heavy ice and snow and warmer when blue skies.
need help please!!
