Hey all, I have a few Meyer lemon seedlings in the windowsill. One has lost several shades of green and is skipping "yellow" to almost turn white. Anyone know what is going on? Attached you will find its brother seedling next to it with a much darker healthier shade of green.

Was it direct sun? If that was the only difference the sun may have caused the fading.
