lemon tree seedling

Hi there,

I have 3 lemon tree seedlings that I’ve been growing since July 2017. Two of the seedlings are doing fine, but this one recently started to take a turn for the worse. The leaves have slowly been falling off and it hasn’t grown in at least 2 months. The stem is still green and I can see a tiny new green leaf growing at the very tip. I recently bought Jobe’s fertilizer to help give it a boost. Is there anything else I can do to help revive it?

  • How wet is that soil mixture? And what sort of lighting are you using? Mar 21, 2018 at 4:17
  • Also the pot is too large for the plant. Consider repotting in a smaller clay pot

Lemon is a Mediterranean plant. She likes dry (and poor) soil.

I think you over-watered too much. Very very too much. Especially in winter, keep the soil almost dry.
