The Q&A Archives: Leaf Drop

Question: What caused visibly healthy leaves to suddenly all fall off sweet orange tree growing inside home?

Answer: Sudden leaf drop is usually caused by a shock or stress of some sort, such as an abrupt temperature change. It could also be caused by overly dry air and high indoor temperatures, or by the plant being in extreme need of repotting, or terribly underwatered. I hope this helps you troubleshoot.
