    I purchased a potted Meyer lemon tree two months ago from Home Depot, Toronto. The tree had no health issues until a fortnight ago, Now, its leaves have developed light patches, some lower ones have turned brown on edges and fallen off. Over watering doesn't seem to be the case. I did put half a spike of citrus fertilizer in the pot 2 weeks ago. I also noticed a few baby spiders on the tree when it was sitting outside( not the red spider mites) which I removed and there haven't been any more since then. I don't see any other signs of insect infestation on the leaves. I am attaching a few pictures of the leaves to give you a better idea. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    I don't recognize what it might be from those two photos. You might want to check other leaves and use the citrus disease tool: Image Gallery | Citrus Diseases

    I checked the gallery and could find nothing resembling this. The leaves are now turning brown on edges and falling off. Some branches are almost bare. Should I consider re-potting with fresh soil? Adding another picture here.

    I'm sorry but I can't make out well. Could you tell me what are these white spots on a branch?

    Do you happen to recognize something like this in those light brown specks? afi2.PNG Dettaglio-afide-della-rosa (2).jpg

    No, there are no.insects of any sort on the leaves or stem. The brown portion is just dried out mostly around the edges of the leaves.
