One center branch is yellowing is this normal? The rest of the plant looks fine?

 

Maybe it is just maturing faster?

When you water ur soil look for any gnats. Do it soon to rule out fungus gnats. If you find some crush a mosquito dunk over the dirt. If you don’t find any than we move to next possibility. 

It is better to keep one’s mouth shut and let everyone think You’re a fool than to open it and prove them all right

Spot on mate, I was thinking the same thing, look out for fungus gnats. Put a sticky trap close to the surface of the medium, and see if you pick any up, that'll be the easiest way to see them

Got under neath her today, ruffled the soil a bit and using a loupe with a light.  Seen one fly, no other activity.  So I`m thinking maybe they are coming from another source?  This is a California Orange and the only one of that strain in this garden.  It is also the only plant showing this.

Leave a sticky trap an inch or so over the top of the soil, itll catch them when they try to fly off, then you'll know for sure if you have them mate

diatomaceous earth or sharp sand on top of soil, will rip them apart when/if eggs undersoil hatch

If you cut a potato in half and set it cut-side down on your soil surface, the FN larvae (if there are any) will congregate underneath and start eating it. It's a sure-fire way to check. Sticky traps are excellent for the adult flying bastards. I've had fungus gnats almost perpetually, in varying population sizes, and haven't seen any actual 'damage' per se from them. The adults don't do anything but fly around (quite shittily mind you), fuck, and lay eggs in the soil. The larvae feed on organic, decaying matter in the soil, and my soil being super, there is a lot of it for them, haha. They can become a problem if they start chewing on the baby roots/root hairs but they generally prefer the decaying shit.. but yes, definitely try the potato trick. Fungus gnats can go straight to hell.

Life's a garden...dig it.

Nice info temple grower! I like that method, haven't heard it before but it makes sense. 

Its the fungus gnats shit thats the problem. They like to live in damp mediums, and the shit will slowly clog the soil to make it have poor drainage, keeping it wet for longer, and increase fungal growth. This also stops the plant from eating right, which make is display symptoms of deficiency 🙂

Give that potato thing a go Phil!

Ahh, interesting. Makes sense though. Hopefully it's none of this and just a plant having a bad day..
