Trying this plant as companion to the yellow pummelo which we found to be very tasty. Leaves were rather pale so added Epsom salt for Magnesium, but this caused leaf fall. However, new leaves are now emerging and are a good green colour.
Comments: - This is one of the citrus fruits with the finest taste
Height 1 metres
Growing: In a Pot
Sun/Shade: Low Sun
Water Given in: Spring
When I Fertilise: Never
Question:Every three to four months, my 2 pomelo trees get new leaves. But after a few weeks, leaves become clearer green, some weeks later, they start to get white to yellow spots that are enlarging until the leaf becomes mostly white. At that moment, it starts to dry out, getting wholes in the leaf, until it is completely dried out and falls off.
Is this an illness, or do I give too much water, or is the soil PH not correct ? I do not know and do not know what to do to save the 5 year old plants.
These two trees were planted 5 years ago, and they reach about 1 metre, but I presume this should be more.
