Hi All,
I have a small orange tree, that I have potted. I have noticed that the edges, appear to curl and brown on some leaves as, well I have noticed, that there appear to be spots or bumps underneath some of the leaves, i haven't seen any, bugs eating
the leaves... I did have it potted with out drainage, but I have added drain holes to the pot...
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

Don't know about the leaf edge -- how many are that way?

But I do know the bumps -- that's scale. A highly refined horticultural oil will work but be certain to follow directions exactly.
