Any advice on increasing the growth of rootstock
« on: March 11, 2018, 06:56:03 AM »
I've been growing citrus from seeds to be used as rootstocks and the trees have been growing quite well. However, the thickness and height of the trees hasn't been growing as desired. Any suggestions on chemicals which can be used to increase the growth rate would be greatly appreciated.

Grow the seedlings under light 12 hours  per day.  Keep the root zone at 80-F 24 hours, give the seedlings good nutrients.
