|Look at all of those yellow leaves!|
I then found out it was a lack of nitrogen. Apparently citrus trees need fertilizer with a 30-10-10 ratio of nitrogen-phosphate-potassium. After work tonight I went and picked up Miracle Gro Miracid. After re-potting the lemon tree into some fresh dry soil I applied the Miracid. I'm supposed to feed the tree with it every two weeks, which means every other week I'll be using a solution of the Miracid to water the tree.
On a happier note, the tree has a bunch of new leaf growth. I'm happy about that!
|You can see the new growth above by the yellow leaf that is going to fall off within the next 24 hours. By the way, this is an amazing picture with the depth of field from the blinds. I love it!|
|Other good news -- the little lemons haven't fallen off and they've doubled in size since I got the tree.|
I will keep repeating, "I will try to be a better lemon tree mommy. I will try to be a better lemon tree mommy..."
