Ahaha, sure you did! Given that i have some plants even in Cortona, you actually touched two of my backyards. Should have written me we could have attempted to visit the citrus in Villa Castello. But well, i guess maybe it's not the best time to go meeting some italians.

I met with 120 or something Italians in the castle for multiple days and I got back healthy :p

Also Agrumi Lenzi, ships outside italy, i'm unsure if outside EU, but i think yes.

I think I drove passed your backyard. I spent a couple of days in the castle of Gargonza 2 weeks ago, near Monte San Savino and Monte Varchi. Also a quick stop at some friends in Scandicci.

When talking about 'dormant', are we talking about the roots that stop working below +- 12C? In that case, don't all citrus trees go dormant when dropping below that temperature?

The most famous banner icon ever. :D

Saw so many amazing things people did to grow citrus around the world. Can't remember who, some in Latvia, that had build his greenhouse underground for winter. Brilliant!

Fast forward to the last month and about 80% of the leaves have dropped. It has blossomed twice but I pulled all of the flowers after reading that it may help the key lime tree bounce back.

This has happened to me as well before. I've noticed that repotting (at least when I o it) is a stressful experience for them. Even my trifoliate lost most of its leaves after repotting. I once had a lemon tree dying after repotting.

Added the swiss one.

Maybe this can become a sticky?

Update: what to do in case you do not have any plugs available (like me) so extra lighting is not possible.

I guess that's inevitable without artificial lighting but a question: does this mean there is an inbalance in the tree? If so, what to do at this point?

Awesome!

Do you have a topic on your way of working? (greenhouse, lighting,...)

Cheers!

Your PT doesn't seem happy.

Yeah the PT had to recover from repotting. I must have done something wrong a while ago so some branches died of but he came back so that's a start. :)

I thought the currency in the Czech republic was euro. I was wrong. :)

Roughly 200 CK for a plant which is roughly 8 euro. Those are some extremely good prices. :o

Citrus General Discussion / Trifoliate and something from seed
« on: October 12, 2018, 04:17:47 AM »
Below some pictures of my trifoliate which I received as seedlings from MarcV a couple of years ago and something that came out of whatever seed I put in the ground during spring.

Would cost a fortune with the permits.

The shipping costs? Or do you need to get permits for plant imports?

Unfortunately, they only ship within Italy. This means, in the future my mother in law will have to receive a tree for me. :p

Added Ruoppo to the list. Located in Sorrento Italy. Has Amalfi and Sorrento. International shipping to be confirmed.

If they come true from eed, that is probably what I planted a couple of months ago.

I just found a different shop (forgive me, I did not check if they ship outside of Italy).

http://shop.ruoppo.it/3-limone

Sorrento as well as Amalfi trees for a very good price if you ask met. 25 euro (like $30) for a 1.2m high tree. I think they are trustworthy since they are located in the region itself.

I mailed them, just to check if they ship abroad (my first mail in Italian :D).

So I got a reply from the seramis (pokon) company...

Hydrograins/balls you generally put at the bottom of the container.
Hydrograins/balls are suitable for in- and outdoor whilst Seramis is for indoor containers.
With Seramis you measure the humidity of the soil with a meter whilst for hydrograins/balls this is not needed.

These are the main differences they gave me.

PS: sorry I am polluting this topic with Seramis info.

Thank you for the reply.

So basically there is no 100% sure way to tell if a seed is true to the parent...

A bit disappointing. :p

Just mailed the seramis company to check what the difference is between seramis and regular clay hydriballs. From the website, I can't see any difference.

My local Hydroponic store has these clay balls, are round and large. Their use is for hydroponic growing. It is not cheap, but worth trying, I have been eyeballing these big bags for a while. I have too many big containers.

I think we are talking about a different type of clayballs then. The ones I'm talking about are super cheap and aren't used that much anymore. They were used like 20 to 30 years ago for whatever reason with plants but now only for special needs.
I wonder if they are equal to seramis...
