Citrus leaves rolling up

Lime, sour    None Given

The leaves of my citrus tree are bending into cylinder shape, rolling up.
I first suspected that I didn't water enough (newly repotted after buying it, I was conservative with water). Now it got colder and there is again/still this rolling up.

Thank you very much for any clues!

The tree needs more water. You'll need to water it deeply, but it should bounce back!

I would say it's transplant shock.
When you newly purchase a tree or any planting it's best to leave it in its container to adjust to the new environment..

Symptom of stress for citrus. Likely water as you assumed. Citrus here in Los Angeles tend to bounce back pretty quick. http://paradisenursery.com/product-ca...
