Leaf curls on lime trees are not necessarily a sign that your tree is dying. Causes for the distress could be diseases, parasites, or improper care. Not to worry, though: if you take quick action, you can reduce the the damage before it gets any worse. First do a deep watering at least twice a week, but be careful and don’t leave a puddle at the base of the tree. Other things you can do is use Neem oil and basic fungicides. These tips can get your tree back in good shape.
- It’s vital that you first thoroughly examine your lime leaves before attempting to treat them
- Be sure you are not giving too much water to the plant, but also be sure you aren’t depriving it of enough water
- If you have determined that it is bugs/parasites that are causing the damage, you can use neem oil to help prevent any further damage
“It’s not uncommon for lime leaves to curl downward in the fall or winter. This isn’t a real problem unless the new growth also comes out curled.”
