help with my lemon tree

pktechdadApril 16, 2014

Hello just register and new to gardening. My wife and I recently bought a eurika dwarf lemon tree and it looked all healthy. After moving it to a bigger pot some leaves started turning yellow fro the centers. We thought maybe we were over watering it. So we stopped and let it dry. Its been hovering about 100 degrees here lately. It seems to be getting worse not better can anyone help us with this. Can't upload images from my ffone but will send pics if you can help would really appreciate it.

All anyone can do without seeing the plant in person is make suggestions.

I can tell you that a very common reason for the failure of container grown plants is problems with the choice of a potting medium. Second on the list would be improper watering.

You should be aware of how moist or dry the soil volume is by digging a bit with your fingers. If dryish to the touch, you should water (drench) thoroughly.

do not send me your pix... figure out how to post them ...

did you protected the transplant from direct sun for a few day.. a week.. a month ????

or blast it out into full sun???

it is not uncommon.. when planting or repotting.. a fully leafed out tree.. to lose some leaves .. its called transplant shock ...

how many you lost is the issue ... and what the buds or growth tips look like ...

in a sense.. the tree sacrifices older leaves... to maintain the growth points ...

and w/o that pic.. i cant give you any more ...

Environmental stress.

At 100F, rig temporary shade or move it into the shade.

Just a thought...what are you watering it with, unfiltered city water? If your refrigerator has a water dispenser use that at room temp. San Diego city water is awful for plants. ;)
