You can think  of canopies of large trees over smaller ones as similar to throwing a blanket over your small tree to hold in heat. The umbrella of foliage of the big tree acts sort of blanket like, giving some cold protection. The ground is warmer than the air in our climate, so blankets trap the heat of the ground in keeping the cold air off.

Sure, itís a slow grower.  My best one is about 3m tall and has flowered twice without setting fruit.  Iím a little concerned that it needs cross pollination to set.

One common cause of delayed graft failure, it is believed, is differences in growth rate between the rootstock and scion.
Some varieties grow at different rates than others.

ZnO, are you sure? ZnO is water-insoluble.
It might be ZnSO4.

Laaz for potted plants though I would imagine applying micro nutrients through out the year would be essential for health and proper fruit production

Micro nutrients in high amounts can lead to toxicity. For instance iron becomes available to citrus when ph is under 6, and with high accumulation in soil can kill the plant.
My greenhouse has also high humidity and as a rule when humidity is high I water less, the plants can take water from the air and water droplets. Of course it depends also on temperature.
