Poor lemon tree will need another chop in spring. But, at least there are healthy leaves.

Are those grow lights to the left?? Did you buy that all together if you don’t mind. It looks great and a good idea going up with either a fro light or just light or alternating. When u can do u mind sort of letting me know. Looks like you have a few. The lite makes a big difference of course. We misted them often at school. Yours r all looking great. Even if it takes awhile I’d love to know how u set that up??

@terrimclaughlin it’s a three tiered grow station hubby got me for Christmas two years ago on amazon. He might still know where to find it. They had to ship the kit twice because shipping seriously damaged the unit. It was fairly easy to assemble. I did it in one evening. 😁

@terrimclaughlin and the light directly behind my lemon tree was supposed to hang horizontally, but them my tree was getting too tall... so I thought, hmmm... I wonder if I release one of the straps and let it hang... viola! Tree and me are much happier.

Probably just a change in temp so a tiny bit of shock

They don't like cold, and they don't like to be moved...picky little buggers...find a spot you will keep her for the winter, and she will regrow her leaves... citrus temper tantrum! Lol :)

@treefrog44 haha! Love that "citrus temper tantrum"! Seriously. I tried to protect the baby... she's settled now and I can figure out if I should trim her or leave her. I remember I trimmed her last year when I brought her in and she bushed out.

Either way, she will put out new leaves, sometimes makes them feel better to have a trim, clean up around the edges...a little pampering, soft music...lol! Getting carried away!!😂

Shock therapy, 1 to 2 tablespoons Epsom salt per gallon of water. Good all around for photosynthesis too.🤗

@reddfla last year, we got one... And it never turned yellow. This year, started with five, but I've broken two by moving the tree around during frosts. :( Three to go... Hopeful. Lol.
