You will do it alone?

Around 500 seedlings to be grafted?

My wife spotted this while I have my saw on that trunk.   
From my experience this is the best way how to convince citrus seedlings to flower ;D

Probably a photo of your plant will help to answer. Also, if you want to graft several varieties you better chose them with same vigor to avoid the disequilibrated growth.

For me the main problem is very mild winters that we experience recently. I am overwhelmed with hybrid seedlings so this season decided to experience with artificial freezing. For the moment have some encouraging results of freezing two month old hardened seedlings at -8C for two hours, approximately 20% of them survive, some without any damage.

Thank you, these leaves look exactly the same as those of my Dunstan. I was asking this question because it seems there exist several varieties with this name.

Ilya11, do your Dunstan flowers have citrus fragrance?

Yes, it is very fragrant, for me its smell is closer to pomelo  than that of grapefruit.
I posted recently on a French forum  a comparison of fruit taste of 5star and Dunstan.
Do you have a photo of the leaves of your Dunstan?

Pomelo flowers are smaller.

Citradia, are your Dunstan looks like this?


I am surprised how large are its flowers
It is  the second time flowering of the plant that was grown  for 10 years from US seeds.

After several years, a cross between Miho and Poncirus is about to bloom.  The pinkish purple color is slightly more intense than shown, and the smallest buds have more color.  I have only seen this color on lemons and limes before. 
Interesting, I wonder if Miho was a mother plant?
It seems that this hybrid is unifolate that is very unusual for F1 hybrids with poncirus.

Small seeds  even in partially zygotic varieties are enriched in spontaneous triploids

Other crosses today
C junos x C keraji
C keraji x C depressa
C latifolia x C junos

Soon C unshiu x C junos
Probably all these crosses were realized many times in Japan.

I do not have any problems with cold sensitivities of poncirus here. It is completely hardy in Paris region with the presence of very old trees in the gardens.

Biuret is formed from urea with storage, especially under higher summer temperatures.
Urea should  not be kept for  a long time.

I keep my fertilizers under dry conditions with desiccants.

Biuret is formed by decomposition of urea giving volatile  ammonia, water is not necessary for this reaction

I have a branch of it grafted on FD. Both are at the same stage (pushing flower buds).

For me these pots are too small relative to the plants size. The rootstocks were probably grown in the nursery by constant drip irrigation in this extremely draining substrate. I would replant them in larger pots with more humus containing soil.
Here in France some people have fairly good results with pots in which 2 cm round holes are made every 10 cm in the bottom part of pot walls. In such pots you can use even pure homemade compost without any root rot problems. The water is draining rapidly and you need it much less.

If you have only incomplete male flowers they will not give any fruit.

By the way, are there any ideas where HLB has been all these centuries before its recent outbreak? in Asia there should be an area where it is indigenous. Or is it a newly developed disease? Are there any sources on that?

Amoa8 fruits are getting very red at maturity, but their taste has nothing exceptional.
