I wish I had thought to take pictures of this plant, but I decided to pull it up and didn't take any...I have been growing citrons from seed for probably two months now. Out of 8 seeds, five germinated, but one had very odd leaves. They were crinkled, had rough edges/an abnormal and irregular outline, partly pigment-less, small, and seemed to tear easily. The plant itself was significantly smaller than the others, but I suspect that that was essentially starvation--with tiny leaves, half of each of which is unable to photosynthesize, the plant was slowly starving to death (which is why I decided to pull it up after I saw that its new leaves had the same problem as the old ones). I suspect this is a genetic disease--does anyone know anything about it?
