Blossom of lemon shrub/tree

I bought this little bush indoors when the weather turned cold. It has several clusters of blossom on it but a lot of the leaves have fallen off. I think I am doing something wrong, but not sure what.

Pretty blossom.
Puzzling about the leaves.

That is lovely Gee. If you have brought it indoors you may need to just give it a spray over the whole plant every day as it likes humidity according to my instructions. They dont like the atmosphere dry apparantly

Do you think that spraying rule applies to lots of plants indoors over winter ?
I have seedlings and cuttings at end of my kitchen and I think they may get rather dry leaves.
What do you reckon, please ? Or would they go mouldy if wet? Looks like I'll kill them through kindness one way or the other. Lol.

Thanks Milky - I'll give that a go although there are not many leaves left now! Found a couple of very tiny caterpillars on it originally and thought that was the problem but the leaves continued to drop.

Would it have gone into shock from the move from outside Gee? Quite a change in temp and in humidity from outside to in. Have you checked for spider mites?

Thats what I though Gilli .. the temp .I mean it,s a big change for it !

You are probably right, Gilli & Amy, the plant is in the same room at Little 'Un so its quite warm. There's no spider mite thank goodness. I will try spraying regularly and hope for the best.

TT I wouldnt think that they should go mouldy, as long as they dont get cold at night or in a draught, and they have plenty of air circulating. and......as long as you go easy on the spraying, just a little misting every few days

My guess was shock from the temperature change aswell. Hope it's doing better. The blossoms smell yummy!
