Mandarins and satsumas

As brian wrote slow release fertilizer is a good method.  For water soluble fertilizers a lot depends how often you water your container trees.  Each watering flushes out some of the fertilizers. In warm locations such as Panama once every two or three weeks would be better.

Yes i agree.  Citradia that would be good information to know.  Please keep the forum posted on your results.

No I don't know, but that shows some exponential thinking on how to solve the problem.

You can make a soapy water solution with any soap product.  It is not a horticulture oil product, it is a soap,.  It should work fine on thrip.

Horticultural oil (very common) is non toxic to humans and animals.  Works wonder on insects. Normal use rate is 2-3 oz./gallon.  Spray in the morning or evening, never spray anything on citrus during the hottest part of the day. A soapy water spray will also work for thrip control

I don't know what your looking at, but thrip damage on citrus leaves does not make white stripes nor dots on the leaves.  On other plants, such as tomatoes thrips do make dots.  On citrus leaves the damage shows up as twisted leaves.  The amount of twisting depends on the severity of the damage.

The problem is most likely caused by thrips feeding on the new growth.  This type of damage is rather common. This site gets posting on this situation with each new flush. Spraying the new tender growth with a good horticultural oil or neem every two or three days until the new leaves firm up will prevent the damage..  Thrips are so small it is very difficult to see them with out a lenses.

I just received my order of a red Grapefruit tree from Madison Citrus Nursery.  I have been in citrus for 40 years, and have purchased trees from just about most of the nurseries.  The Grapefruit tree from Madison Citrus Nursery was by far the very best tree I have ever purchased.  There are many fine nurseries that offer quality trees, all I am saying the grapefruit tree I received from Madison is the best one of all the trees I have purchased over the years.  I also seen two trees that Laaz received from them and they were just as good.

W thanks for pointing out that the Citrus Industry article concerning Cyan 365 was a Sponsored Content.  I did not see that, and did not even know that Citrus Industry did Sponsored  Contents.  Regret to find that out.  Quite embarrassing.

Laaz we will just have to agree to disagree about the Citrus Industry magazine hyping BS.  Over the years, I and many others have learned a ton from reading the Citrus Industry Magazine.

Citrus General Discussion / CYAN-365
« on: July 13, 2021, 09:27:07 PM »
CYAN-365 is really making a name for itself.  In a CYAN-365 study, Hamlins yielded an additional 369 pounds per acre, more than 31 additional boxes per acre, 27% less fruit drop and 18% more fruit count. Valencias yielded 398 more pounds per acre, 54 more boxes per acre and 18.2% more fruit. The product rejuvenates the tree, speeding up the maturing process and keeping the stems healthier. The increased sugar content of the fruit is where CYAN 365 is in a class of its own.

Had a little leaf tip on mine when the temperature reached 103 and stayed there for an hour.

Dying citrus trees do produce a bloom, but not both blooms and green vegetation.  CanadianCitrus your plant most likely is producing a flush and bloom because you are doing everything well.  What you suggest concerning a more frequent watering schedule is called a constant feeding feeding (less but more often)  You can also use both a slow release fertilizer along with Jacks, just don't over do it..  Nothing wrong with that. Thanks for the update. 

The tree has grown but has not yet fruited.

Don't put all of the larger sized particles just in the bottom of the container.  Doing so raises the perched water table higher up into the container. They should be blended throughout the entire medium.  People I know that use a turface mixture does something like 50 percent turface and 50 percent peat.  I know that Brian uses a turface blend, he can also help you when you sees your post.

Incubator, it is not the water that causes the problem, it is the lack of rootzone oxygen that causes the problem.  When the soil breaks down and compacts the water plugs up all the air spaces.

incubator, seems like a lot of peat.
