Droopy Lime w/ pic and some other citrus updates
Having a little problem with a lime. Only had it a few months and not sure its issue which started last week. Some Data:
It is potted
It is still outside (none of our night temps below 40 yet)
Fertilized just after labor day
Gets same sun as my Meyer which has mature fruit and tons of new blooms
Have not had a free weekend to repot to 5-1-1 mix
Appears a bird has been scratching around the upper roots
Bottom of container may be a bit too damp due to some recent rains
The Satsuma and lemons are getting same light, water, & fertilizer and doing just fine. Tangelo is fighting a bit of nutrient deficiency (yellow leafs with green veins - on younger leaves which I think is iron deficient). It received an extra dose of fertilizer last week of September and is still looks nutrient deficient. Soil feels OK.
Question: any thoughts on lime problem (I am thinking too damp) and should I hit the tangelo with some more fertilizer (fertilome citrus) or just wait for the last dose to take effect.
On the positive citrus side, my in ground Armstrong Satsuma produced 11 fruit. They were a bit small, but very good in taste. Meyer lemon has 5 mature fruit, 2 immature fruit, and about 10 bloom clusters. Seto Satsuma produced 3 large fruit this year. Also have two meyer cuttings that are four weeks old and still look good and healthy.
