I have a 9-10' fruiting loquat in a 20g pot, figs, pomegranate, persimmon, citrus, avocado, and guava in respective pots. I'm eventually going to move them all into fabric pots to prevent root binding though, like my mamey sapote.

Good evening!
I'm hoping you guys can offer some help!

Last year I purchased a pantin variety (2-3') from a nursery in Florida, followed their directions for soil and watering, and chose a 20 gallon fabric pot to keep it in. I used the FoxFarms organic Ocean Forest soil with added azomite.

I brought it inside to my sunroom over winter (which stays roughly 75f) and tried to make sure it was watered sparingly, but thoroughly. However I'm concerned that even with my reservations it sat too long in water after it drained. It was never deeper than an inch, and wasn't often as I tried to make sure the soil was never wet or too moist. It got several hours of direct sunlight, and humidity from my 2 aquariums.

Last month I put it back outside (I'm in Savannah, GA) and a bit more worried since I'm seeing no signs of growth. The leaves are still on, but no nodes are swelling and there's been zero growth from the budding leaf bundle at the top which has held the same shape for at least 6 months. Is it warm enough yet during the day (high 70's-90f day, 50's+ nights)? It gets a good 6 hours of sun right now and will get more as summer rolls in.

I've also scratch tested the trunk with my fingernail and it's still green. Any advice on this would be incredible.

Thank you!
