|I purchased a Monrovia ( Moro Blood Orange tree) I keep it indoors. The leaves are falling. Why?|
|When any plant is brought indoors it can be a shock to the system since conditions in our homes are generally not as "perfect" as at the grower's. Dropping leaves is a typical reaction to this, and citrus are often prone to leaf drop, even when grown outdoors, when temperature conditions change. Transplanting is another shock to their root system.|
Keep your citrus well-watered as they are highly moisture-dependent, but don't let the roots sit in wet soil. They also need as much sunlight as possible. I wouldn't recommend fertilizing until the plant's start to put out new growth. Use a citrus fertilizer and follow package instructions. Citrus are heavy feeders so they will quickly use up nutrients in the soil.
