citrus clementina, limon, paradisi, australasica
« on: November 02, 2020, 06:47:05 AM »
1. clementina

no fruit but what is wrong here?? what to do?









2. limon

have some lemons when are they ready?







3.  paradisi

only 1 fruit when is it ready?







4. australasica

a lot of fruit and flowers, when are they ready?








my 4 plants are in this soil, when is the best time for repotting my plants?
i have perlite, turf, reptibark and some citrus soil with big perlite (i think)
is it best only use the 5-1-1 recipe or can i add some citrus soil to it?
i use a liquid fertiliser from substral NPK 7-3-5 with elements, is it good enough?
















at least, im from belgium, there are no strong winters anymore here the last years, will they survive outside or do i have to find another solution
hope someone can help
much thanx

I have been Belgium, where people skate on frozen pond/river in winter if I remember correctly.

I am not completely sure but it looks like it may be what is called root rot.

I am not sure the name in your country.

Looks like phytophthora root rot in the early stage.  You can find a lot of information about phytophthora root rot on the Internet.  Also,  looking at your container's growing medium, it does not look anywhere close to a 5-1-1 medium.  Your adaptions have ruined the 5-1-1.  The surface of the medium almost looks sealed off.
