Kaffir Lime Tree yellowing

monicami(7B)November 8, 2013

Please see the attached photo. The tree has always done well until the move to NC. It comes indoors during cold months only. Started to yellow before the cold snaps. Read that it may need nitrogen but I'm not sure. They recommended wonder grow or superthrive. It went through a very hot summer. Don't think it's root rot as drainage is very good, maybe too good. Not sure what to do to save my great tree. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm not a kaffir lime expert; but my limited experience with them is that they are not difficult Looks to me like your tree is quite underfed; the leaves should be a very dark green, and larger than yours; and I don't see any signs of new growth, so it is likely your tree is sucking the life out of the leaves it has, so that the core can survive.
