my lemon tree that I grew from a seed has turned white the last week, the green color in the leaves and trunk slowly disappears and turns completely white. it is still growing well as always. maybe it's because I first put it out in full sun, since then it got whiter. can he be burned by the sun? and how do I fix this?

A picture would be a big help for the members to help, but I'm thinking that it was the sun,for now I'd keep it in the shade and keep the soil moist 💚

it is difficult to get in a photo, but in some places it is very white. and 1 leaf had small white dots.

Its a type of Edema or oedema and is a sign that your plant has been overwatered just a little. Let the soil dry a little more between waterings and it will go away.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
