Cold Hardy Citrus / How should I plant P. trifoliata outdoors in zone 6a
« on: October 17, 2018, 01:25:25 PM »
I have a two year old P. trifoliata started as a cutting that I would like to plant outdoors. Any tips for ensuring its survival?

I read this thread on a fig forum. https://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-home/291461-rooting-cuttings-can-we-reduce-the-process-to-its-essence
It caused me to ask the same question about rooting citrus cuttings. From this posting: Question: What are the essential components of an environment that will cause wood to sprout? Under proper conditions, we should need no medium at all, other than air -- a stick of fig wood suspended magically in the air could sprout roots, if other conditions were suitable. If so, then everything non-essential might simply complicate the process and reduce the probability of success. The non-essentials could be eliminated, boosting the probability of success.
The poster in this thread found that fig cuttings will root without being stuck into a growth/rooting medium. Can this be true of citrus? In other words, what are the essential conditions required for rooting citrus cuttings?

Is girdling to increase fruit size and yield a common practice by commercial citrus growers?

Does it make a difference if you use a wide, squat pot or a deep pot of the same diameter?

My greenhouse contains seedlings and trees that are up to 10 years old. I would like the greenhouse conditions to be favorable for rapid growth of the seedlings and for maximum fruit development of the older trees. What temperature settings should I use for the day and for the night?

Citrus General Discussion / Bleach for root rot???
« on: March 13, 2017, 11:24:34 PM »
In the FAQ section of the "other" citrus forum it says to use 1 part bleach to 4 parts water for treating root rot. Some hydroponics sites also mention using bleach but at much lower concentrations. Has anyone used bleach to cure root rot in citrus?

Can someone recommend a soil mix recipe for containers of 15 gal and up for growing citrus? I have tried commercial cactus potting soil but lost a nice calamondin as a result (root rot). I also tried Talpa's gritty mix on a few small trees but I need to re-pot 5 large trees and the gritty mix takes way too much work to prepare. Any suggestions?

So pesticides would be more effective during flush.

Citrus General Discussion / When to repot
« on: February 08, 2016, 10:24:36 PM »
I have a 40 year calamondin that has been in the same pot for about 5 years. Leaves look good but it has not put out any new growth in a while. But the root ball is pretty dense. Should I leave it in the same pot and prune the roots? Should I also prune the branches? Or should I just put it into a larger container without pruning it?
