That's different. 35, 50, 65l. But for example, the first (Ichimaru) are two plants in two 20l containers. The last Primosole has a 65l container. This is the maximum for me (containers have to move over 4 steps)

I have the same problem with Meyer lemon as you (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=ef5496e71cab6e84e61e7450a2ae1b6d&topic=25303.msg296238#msg296238). I was hoping somebody could advise. I also do not know what it is. What is it? And what about it? In some features it's very similar to Greasy spot, but Greasy spot is (probably) not.
My Meyer was without these symptoms from 1984 until 2010/2011. From 2011, it appears in the second half of the year regularly. It attacks only old leaves or twigs, new additions are flawless. For these reasons, I think it's a fungi (But at the same time it does not spread to other citrus trees. That's weird). I have tried all the available fungicides, but without success (The EU market is heavily regulated, really effective means can not be bought at all, they are forbidden, and there is a need for special registrations and permits for that). Recently I managed to get a little non-selling fungicide (active substance: cyproconazole 160 g / l + trifloxystrobin 375 g / l). I will try it next year. It's my last hope.

Snek, I had very similar problem with my Meyer lemon. I've read somewhere it's called plant's edema (or oedema), and that it affects only plants in pots. It is said to occur when roots take the water too fast, so that leaves can't transpire it and they get damaged.
I don't know if it's really the edema, and why it occurs only on Meyers. In my case, similar as in yours, the disease didn't spread on any of my other plants. The Meyer's tree eventually lost all leaves and died.

By the way, you have really impressive plants, Snek. :D

Snek your trees are looking great. Do you have them in a green house year round or moving in and out through the seasons? What kind of material are your container? I would love to get my trees to fruit like that.

Ahoj Sneku, pictures are great. Congratulation.great effort. It is good to let people all around the world  know about Czech citrus industry which is very promising especially in latest years thank to global warming.In Czech republic we have very favorable conditions for growing citrus trees. No greening disease, no fruitfly, hot days (around 10 in a year) and cool nights (around 350 a year) .  Our local delicacy - green fresh frozen oranges - is unfortunatelly little underrated so far but we can supply all around the world especially during november and december. Regarding your great pictures i can see bright future for our mighty Czech citrus industry.Btw what fertiliser do you use for your citrus trees? urea, organic manure or any industrial chemical manure?

Hi Snek,
About tmy meyer lemon, I got a few suggestion from different persons. Some said is oedema, some said a kind of fingus. I tried to water and fertilize less in case it's oedema but the situation didn't improve. I tried different fungicide and didn't see any improvement. Like yours, my meyer carried the symptom on older leaves and limbs and shred a lot of those infected leaves. Finally, I sprayed it with a product called "end all" and the shredding stopped. Do you think that it's spme kind of mites?

Snek, your trees are spectacular. What amaze me it's the proportion between the tree size and the container. I always thought that to have trees that big the container ahould be lot bigger. Do you root prune these trees? If yes, how do you proceed? Thank you so much for the information
