Citrus problem

    6 responses

Diego starts with ...
I very recently planted some citrus (lemon and seville orange) which were well watered in and with fresh cow dung added to the soil beforehand. The upper surfaces of the leaves have now turned white (not yellow). They were dark green when I planted them. I grew them from seed and they have never seen direct sunlight. Now they are out in the paddock and they have had a good dose of warm autumn sunlight. I have never seen this whitening before. Could it be sunburn/scorch? I thought scorch would cause browning rather than (upper surface) whitening. There are a few very new leaves growing that don't seem to be affected (yet?)

Hi Diego

That's normal for shade grown plants to get shocked and have their leaves scorched white like bleached when exposed to sudden sunlight even during autumn. They will recover in due time though. Same thing happened to my air layered lemon when I was growing them inside my pergola and brought them out for a bit of sun for hardening but recovered in a few weeks.

Happy GARDENING :-)
