I think my Eureka lemon hates me!
Okay, that title is a little dramatic but something is definitely wrong. I've been doing all I can to give it some TLC and it rewards me with fallen leaves, bare branches, and weird little brown spots. I have a variegated "pink lemonade" Eureka lemon tree. I got it a few months ago and repotted it in a terra cotta pot with Miracle Gro citrus and palm soil. Before you say anything, I NOW know that the soil is completely wrong (probably why it is mad with me). Since visiting the forum I've discovered Al's miracle mix recipes and now feel like I got taken by the big box stores. In my defense, how can a citrus newbie pass up a bag of soil that actually says "citrus" on the label?
As far a my care for the plant: I water about twice a week make sure not to let it sit in water. When it was warmer out I would let her stay outside in full sun, now that its colder (meaning 60's for the high and 30"s for the low)she is indoors by a window that gets good sun. I occasionally remember to turn a fan on her to give her a breeze. That's about it. I've notice that there are tiny brown spots on the leaves and on the stems. After researching, the best I've come up with is citrus scab but not sure. The leaves have been slowly falling for about 2 months. I've noticed some webbing so I've been spraying with a neem oil product about every 2 weeks. Yet the brown spots persist and so does the leaf drop. What do I do?
