|Hello I just recently purchased a key lime tree. I haven't had a chance to switch the tree out of the black pot it came in I'm hoping to do that next week. I purchased a 15gallon pot as the replacement. I'm also slowing trying to acclimate him so that I can keep it outside during the summer. However today I noticed some of the leaves throughout the turning a yellow color and I had two leaves fall off. I have a moister meter and it's not dried or overly saturated. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to keep it's leaves from turning yellow and curling a little?

The rest of your tree looks great - two yellowing leaves is not a crisis.
It doens't need a new pot; the one its in is large enough to last at least another year. Don't fertilize until later this year (you don't know what it came with) and then use citrus food at 1/4 strength.
