I just applied Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer for citrus to my potted Meyer lemon tree. The leaves had been variegated, yellowing but with green veins. It looks like that may be due to Magnesium, Iron, and Manganese deficiency. How long should I expect the fertilizer to take to improve the appearance of the leaves, and how do I know if I need to apply more?

Our dry fertilizers usually take about 20 days to break down, our liquids fertilizers about 10 days. You could start seeing improvements on deficiencies within those days. You would apply every 2 month on our dry during the growing season and every 2 weeks of our liquid.
