Title: yellow branches on poncirus
Post by: incubator01 on October 10, 2021, 05:00:34 PM
So, I am aware the poncirus trifoliate is deciduous and will lose its leaves in autumn, mine is doing so, but some branches on the lower end of the trunk (thin branches) turned completely yellow.
Is this also normal within the deciduous  phase or not? I pruned them off since they were not needed anyway but I haven't watered it in a week, and last week I watered it a bit according to winter regime, my other plants in the same soil do fine so this one's a bit of an oddball.

It is now getting close to the middle of October.  Some leaves on my trifoliate are turning yellow.  It is normal at this time of year.

For the leaves i understand but i didn't know thin branches would turn yellow too.
I thought only leaves would be affected.

My leaves are still green.  Yellow stems are being dropped

Yellow twigs are a sign of some kind of lack of nutrients.

Yellow twigs are a sign of some kind of lack of nutrients.

shouldn't be since it's been fed in september with a proper slow release fertilizer I use on all my citrus. And this is the last time until march that it got food since the cold is coming.
So far no other branches turned yellow, plant is showing nice autumn leaf colors and simply needs a watering tomorrow.
