Millet, very good report, the budwood you send me is doing terrific can wait to sample some in the not too distant future. Both varieties you send me are getting the best care. 

 AM Leonard sells Rootmaker pots in those sizes, including 3 gls. I like them and so does the tree's.

I have a red one and one is not enough, 3 is the absolute minimum. I can,t get enough eating them.

What if your tree,s has a lot of fruits going into the winter months, do you maintain a certain temp in your greenhouse?

I sure hope this will work. What would life be without citrus. Millet no orange juice for you in the morning?

Slicko, citrus is more sensitive than most crops to biuret, an impurity present in urea fertilizer created by excessive heating of chemical reactants during urea manufacture.  Toxicity can result from soil or foliar spray applications of urea applications with elevated biuret concentration. If urea is used as a nitrogen source for citrus, it should contain not more than 0.25 - 0.50% biuret by weight.  The leaf symptoms of biuret toxicity appear as an irregular butter yellow chlorosis that starts at the leaf tip.  Young leaves are more vulnerable than old ones, and affected leaves do not regreen.  On very young, expanding leaves, urea with a biuret concentration in excess of 1.0% may cause distortion as well as typical yellowing.  Succeeding growth flushes appear normal, provided applications of High biuret urea is not repeated.
Tween 20 food grade, what brand do you use Millet and where do you order this. Amazon has a product called: polisorbanate 20 made by a florida company.

Millet, have you tasted a Santa Teresa yet this year? Just wondering to compare with others you grow. Mine S/T is growing well. Can,t wait what this  year going to do with my citrus tree,s.

I was told it is a patented tree and they don't sell budwood. You might be able to buy a tree from a vendor, licence to sell out of state.Check 2 and none have them.

This type of grafting is used a lot with apple tree's. For instance m111(almost standard). with m27 (dwarf). Can this applied with citrus? F/D with a standard citrus full size tree rootstock?

Millet, are you using urea pellets and than adding it to water to spray? Do you spray urea before spraying with Tweet 20 to seal in the urea?

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Pomelo - citrus maxima strange leaves
« on: November 03, 2017, 08:21:56 PM »
I don't have the luxury of a greenhouse, so i have to grow mine a little different My garage door fully opens to 80" max. All my container grown tree's has to stay less than that, they are also on dollies for easy in and out. I shape my tree's for that reason. If my tree's are very healthy with a decent root growth i will prune mine more drastic, i am talking young tree's here, that need to be shape.
