I received two potted Orange Satsuma trees as a gift. They've been doing great up until about a week ago. One of the trees started looking wilted. The leaves recently started to shrivel and now they've started dropping off. I have such a black thumb...but I know this isn't a good sign.

I've been watering both trees regularly and when the tree first started wilting I figured it needed more water, but that hasn't helped. So now I'm worried maybe the tree has the opposite problem..and I've over watered it. I water the trees every other day. Is this way too much?

Help save my poor trees!
