Lime leaves yellowing

Lime, sour    None Given

Hi. Potted lime in hot climate, watered twice a week in summer and fed once each 6-8 weeks. Leaves are yellowing with dark veins. Any advice? Thanks

I think it is magnesium deficiency. The symptoms are in beginning stage. Typically leaves show yellowing particularly towards apex area in older leaves (yellowing looks like inverted- V on leaves).
Generally it can be rectified by applying recommended quantity of Epsom salt or dolomite.

But you mentioned that plants have been fed every 6th or 8th week. Are you applying any micronutrients?

Thank you Ravi. Using a general plant food that has some magnesium but maybe under-applying. Leaves seem to be uniformly yellowing but will keep eye open for V pattern. Appreciate the help!
