Help with citrus in pots with yellow mottled leaved

Asked July 13, 2019, 9:45 PM EDT

Hello, I have a few citrus in pots on our concrete patio. One of the regular lemon tree's leaves have become somewhat mottled and yellow. I'm not sure why? The Kaffir lime we have had mealy bugs, but I've used the crysanthimum insecticide, and that seems to be under control. Please help!

Thank you for your question. It would help to know where you are in Oregon, how old are the trees, and what you’ve done in caring for them. Are they in well-draining pots? How often are they watered and fertilized? Are they in potting soil? Here is a general care guide for container citrus in Oregon that you can compare with yours: https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=25682 Thank you for further information.
