Hi guys,

I recently purchased a meyer lemon tree and it was doing well until this week when the leaves began to turn yellow. The yellowing appeared punched out and appears more prominent on the sides. I am not sure what can cause this. My soil humidity level is ok, I'm using parrot which helps to prevent over watering. I've attached few photos. Any help is highly appreciated. I really don't want this plant to die.

Thank you so much

Hi @dshnay Welcome to NGA

How and when do you water? Some of the leaves look scorched. That can happen when water stays on leaves on hot sunny days.

Have you fed your tree? Citrus trees are heavy feeders and require nitrogen for healthy growth. This link has info on taking care of your tree.

Welcome! Has the plant been sprayed with anything, our been outside when there was any pesticide spraying or some kind of chemical exposure in the vicinity? Is it living indoors or out?
