Lossing Leaves on my budding Orange Tree

I have a potted Washington Navel Orange tree, she is normally a VERY strong tree, but she has now grown more branches and leaves even has new buds, yet her younger not as strong branches that also had flowers blooming on her, not only is losing all of her leaves (The main braches are not) Her other branches are dying (I did the scratch test and it was brown) At the way bottom of my Tree, there is this green branch thing growing, I am wondering if that's the issue.

Hi! Its best to ask your questions on the 'Citrus' forum, they are very friendly and knowledgeable. I too grow citrus indoors, however, and it is that time of year when leaves fall off of your tree. Ask for 'Meyermike'. Mrs. G

I can't thank you enough. You are very kind and helpful, thank you again.

The green branch is coming from below the graft. It's a sucker. Get rid of it.

RE: Lossing Leaves on my budding Orange Tree

I had the same happen to my potted orange this year and 2 years ago. The problem both times I believe was with the roots not getting appropriate amounts of water because of over compaction of roots in the pot. If this seems to be the problem with your tree and you have not root pruned and repotted in recent years, you may consider doing that now.
