Lemon Tree Dopping Leaves

    3 responses

Hi,

Don't know if I can fix typo in the subject, it should be "e;Lemon Tree Dropping Leaves"e;

Our potted Eureka lemon tree is gradually dropping leaves. The leaves veins are getting yellow and then the leaves fall. Please see attached photo.
The tree was bought and replanted a year ago, itís not overly dry or wet, getting adequate light and nutrition including trace elements.
The new shoots and leaves are developing well, the tree was flowering a few times and have a few lemons growing.
Is this a lack of nutrition or a disease or something else?
Thank you.

Lack of a trace element I would think. Manganese or iron according to this site.

Thanks for the response.
I suspected that as well but then searched for the images of leaves affected by manganese or iron deficiency and it looks like leaves become pale and yellow between veins and veins remain green. In my case itís vice versa, veins are getting yellow. I also sprayed with trace elements, just in case, but it didn't have an effect.

Maybe check Boron deficiency? That causes yellow veins.
