Answer: Hi There,

Thanks for sending in your pictures. from the looks of it your mandarin has a Magnesium deficiency and the twisted growth was probably a result of a manganese deficiency.

You can try Yates Leaf Greener Magnesium Chelate and Yates Citrus Cure Zinc and Manganese to get the leaves and stems fixed. Apply as a foliar spray.

After that you will need to make sure to use a complete fertilizer regularly. Such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Plus Fruit Food Apply 100g per sqaure metre Every 6 to 8 weeks (from early Spring to mid Autumn.
