hi guys.
im new here. first of all. my enlgish is not so good so my excuses. every article i read here i am using google translate to understand better. i am very happy i found this forum because it helps me a lot.
since a year i started with some seeds from citrus fruits, orderd some citrus from a guy on internet and i also bought some little citrus plants in a small shop in the netherlands.

my small collection:

orderd from an internet guy:

- 5 x poncirus trifoliata (+- 10cm) (since april '19 but dont see em growing)


cutting from a local shop:

- 1 x orange arancio  (+- 10 cm)
- 2 x lemon unknown (+- 10 cm)

bought in a small shop in the netherlands:

- 2 x citrus volkameriana  (+- 10 cm)
- 1 x poncirus trifoliata (+- 30 cm)

2 x passion fruit supermarket
3 x adcocado HASS ( 2 bio , 1 normal ?? ) supermarket
1 x  ANANAS supermarket
2 x  MANGO  (1 KENT, 1 unknown maybe also kent) supermarket


so my question is about my citrus plants
what do you think of my plants/ seeds?
are this nice plants or are they useless in future...?
or any tips to do with my citrusses

i am a noob but im trying to learn a lot here i hope someone has some advice for a beginning grower
again excuses for my english talk
 hope to make some new friends here

cheers

ragnarlookbrood,
Congratulations on your Citrus collection. In regards to using Google translate, over the past 2 years I've done a lot of English-Russian translations. 2 tips that I use are doing a reverse translation to see if the results are still coherent and translating through a third language with which I have some familiarity (Spanish, or German in my case). If the translation transmits clearly and comprehensibly, I'm satisfied that it's an acceptable translation.

Are you growing in containers?  Inside the house?  Or outside except for winter?

The seedlings may take a very long time to fruit.
