Orange tree nitrogen deficiency?

I have an orange tree in a pot and it just started blooming bright green leaves and some of the other leaves have pronounced veins. Also the darker green ones that are curling. I use worm compost & blood meal as there anything else that could be causing this. My little orange buds have been falling off :-(

Looks like not enough Nitrogen to me. I would fertilize with a good citrus fertilizer that has the proper NPK ratio. It should be as close to a 5:1:3 ratio as possible.

Yes , I am with Patty,..

One that is readily available in a good fertilizer since that kind of fertilizer works too slow in pots and works different in ground trees..

Thank you! It now even has some brown spots on its bright green leaves
