I purchased a lime tree at Home Depot 3 weeks ago and
the leaves seem to be getting bigger than usual. What's causing this?

If your new lime has been recently fertilized, it could result in a flush of new growth, which can be a lighter color than normal, with oversized leaves. The foliage will eventually turn a dark green as it matures so there's nothing you need to do. Best wishes with your lime tree.
