The tree is about 2-3 months old in ground. I fertilized with general citrus fertilizer and fish fertilizer. It gets about 12+ hrs of sun a day. New growth is light green, misshapen, and has depressions that are rough.

I try to keep the soil moist. I'll try watering it a little extra and see if that does anything in the short term.

Why did you use two types of fertilizer? You may have over done it.

I guess I may have been trying to hard. Should I prune the malformed leafs?
