Help with my meyer lemon
« on: September 02, 2017, 09:45:14 AM »
Hi everyone,
some leaves on my meyer lemon have develop some yellow patches on the. What do you think could be the reason?
Here are some background:
- I live in montreal canada where we had a very wet and cold summer this year.
- I only water my tree when the top is drying and give some fertilizer once a week (dynagro foliage 9-3-6).
- It had been outdoor all summer and Have been indoor this week because the temperature is going down to 40F.
Where are some pictures



I have inspected the tree and didn t see any bugs. By precaution, I spray my tree with a insecticide soap.
Thank you for your hep

looks like a fungus? With all the rain I think very possible

People have seemed to think this is a form of greasy spot fungus.

I didn't say I agreed ;). But would love a better diagnosis!

The symptoms of Mtlgirl's tree look simular to Matt-citrus' tree.

Hi,
I already tried to spray my tree with a fungicide a few weeks ago. Should I spray it another time?
Thank you for all your help
