Happy prosperous and healthy New Year. - Millet

Before spring flowering use a fertilizer high in potash. Avoid excess nitrogen during the flowering period as this spurs leafy growth but minimizes the production of flowers.

From the picture, your container seems to be approximately 8 times wider than its depth.  What (in inches) is the actual depth and width of the container?

I remember Brian earlier wrote about trying shallow but wider container culture for his citrus trees.   Certainly looks to have worked out successfully.  I have a small Okinawan Shikuwasa citrus tree, and will follow Brian's lead and plant the Shikuwasa in a shallow and wide container.  Should be a fun experiment.

Brian, nice looking tree, with well developed fruit. The tree must have a well developed root system.  Thanks for sharing.   Merry Christmas to you and your wife and child.

Looking at the first picture (a well developed root stock picture) it certainly looks to be either a Carrizo or Troyer Citrange rootstock.  However, I have no idea what variety was grafted onto the  rootstock in your picture.  Troyer and Carrizo citranges were developed in 1909 as sister rootstocks from a cross between Washington navel orange X Trifoliate Orange).

I don't know for certain what the Orange county root stocks were back then, but the two most rootstocks at that time in California were Troyer and Carrizo.

SC400 I did plant the seeds,  I also have a large in ground Dekopon tree that produces a lot of fruit.

I found 5 seeds in a Dekopon (Shiranui).  First time I ever found a seed in this variety.

The name Satsuma is credited to the wife of the U.S. minister to Japan, General Van Valkenburg who sent trees home in 1878 from Satsuma Japan where it was believed to have originated.  When grown properly, a satsuma grown from seed should bloom and fruit in 3 to 5 years.

One thing about "seedless" citrus.  By USDA regulations in the United States, all citrus varieties that contains 6 seeds or less can be legally sold and marketed as seedless.

Because of the business we are in, the 55 gallon plastic barrels I use are free.

Kumin, I have the same type of water set up in my greenhouse as you have.  In my greenhouse, I have 100 X  55-gallon drums full of water, the free heat that they release into the greenhouse every night is measurable.   I also use them as benches for my container plants, witch grow amazingly will with the bottom heat. During the winter nights the water temperature in each barrel normally drop 3 or 4 degrees F, thus giving off 1,344 Btu each night per barrel  (134,400 free BTU per 100 barrels each night).

Good fruit crop on the above tree.  Nice growing tree.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Kumquats seedlings dying
« on: November 23, 2023, 02:10:00 PM »
I go along with David Kipps, that the seedling has the fungi damping off, caused by the fungus rhizoctonia, Pythium or fusarium.  This problem is caused by over wet soil in cool conditions. There is nothing you can do about it now.   To avoid this from happing again, after watering place the container in a sunny window after each watering, so the top surface of the soil quickly dries.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: What's wrong with this key lime tree?
« on: November 21, 2023, 12:01:59 PM »
Nothing seems to be all that wrong with your tree.  The crinkling of the tree's leaves was caused by an insect called a thrip.   The damaged leaves are still producing energy to the tree.  This happened when the leave were still very new and young.  To prevent this happing to the next flush of leaves spray them with a good horticultural oil every 3 or 4 days until the firm up to kill the thrips.  Thrips are very tiny and extremely hard to see.

I am in Colorado. I was traditionally in zone 5B and am still in 5B.  No global warming in Colorado.

Ilya11,  I notice you just push your seeds partially into the soil, with the top half of the seeds still in the air.  I have always buried my seeds  1/2 to 1 inch into he soil.  I further noticed your method of seed germination was very high, and still applied enough moisture to the seeds for a high germination.
Thank you for your post.

How long has the tree been growing in that same medium?

To me it does not look anything close spider mite damage.  Unfortunately, I think the tree has a bacterial or viral disease
