Now a bigger problem, I have what I think is a fungus or some disease on all my citrus (at least lemon and lime). It looks like a snail trail on the leaves, a silvery squiggly line that is on the leaf. It seems to only affect new growth, which is sad since the lemon just finally started growing. I haven't found any description of a fungus that has this trait. But it shows up on the leaf, and then after about two weeks, the leaf is wilted up and dying. I've been just cutting the leaves off hoping to stop the spread, but I don't really know how it spreads.
I bought a general tree fungicide, but I really don't want to blindly treat the tree for fear of causing bigger problems. Can anyone help? What is the natural fungicide? I couldn't find it in the library. Is it diluted vinegar?
