Rootstock help.
« on: May 20, 2018, 01:01:32 PM »
So Iím planning on growing some gold nugget mandarin, pink lemons, blood oranges and some cara caras. I was wondering what would be the best rootstock to use for them. The climate of the region is usually hot and dry then when it rains it gets sort of flooded. Can anyone help me?

What part of Mexico? Elevation, soil conditions? Will you grow in pots or on ground?
Near NRG Stadium USDA zone 9a

Iím located at Quintana Roo the elevation is around 10m above. The soil is loam however Iíve planted a few grapefruit trees a year ago and I saw little growth and the leaves turned a light shade of yellow perhaps due to nutrient deficiencies.
