Seedless lime deficiency
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:05:28 AM »
I have this seedless lime (a type of Tahiti lime, even though the fruit and taste is a little bit different, more aromatic), variety unknown of Thai origin. It has been airlayered, so no rootstock.
It shows a deficiency, even though I spray with micronutrients on the older leaves still persists.
Any thoughts?

To me it looks like Hualongbing (citrus greening disease).. A deadly disease originating in Asia.
But I have no personal experience with HLB, so let's wait for an expert in that matter.

Could be also some virus disease like psorosis

They started to get yellow during the summer. Now new fresh growth is clean dark green leaves and the plant started to flower.

Various deficiencies show symptoms, and with some deficiencies when the deficiency is cured the damaged leaves do not regain their normal coloration.
