Mikes the bug is a wolly mealy bug.


The plant is in a pot I assume.......maybe post in on the citrus forum as there are a lot of people there that grow in pots. I have 15 citrus in the ground and have never seen leaves do that so I would just be guessing at the cause.

Here is a link that might be useful: Citrus forum

Bamboo,

This one is on Long Island, NY and YES it is in a pot and was indoors over winter. I noticed this when I put the pots out this weekend.

Canadianplant: Not sunburn as it was indoors when this happened. I had it under a Compact Florescent bulb until being taken out.

Thanx
Mike

Was it really close to the light? Just to clarify, this happened indoors, not outside?

Especially when plants are in pots my go to would be it got dry or fertilizer burn but I am clueless about pot culture. Steve (fruitnut) may know as he is very knowledgeable on pot culture and does grow citrus.

If the NSA is listening in.... growing in a pot not the growing of pot :)

C: yes this happened indoors. I had it about 12 inches from the light and only in the last week or so before I decided to put them out for the season. I will be re-potting this weekend.

B: Shhhhhhhh
