Hi Kerry,

I've never hears of a lime with the name 'north east' and couldn't find any info on it. Do you mean you live in the North East part of the US? I'm thinking so since you mention a temp of 70 degrees. If so, I'm thinking it's a lime tree in a pot. If you are bringing the plant indoors after you have turned on the heat and have left it outside during cold nights, it will drop it's leaves from the shock of the temperature change. Here's how to move plants indoors and outdoors.

You don't mention anything about when the tree was repotted last. Check to see that it's not rootbound and needing a new pot about 2" larger. Here's how to grow citrus in containers.
