You might want to increase the pot size by 2 inch diameter and maybe a inch or 2 deeper.  Is you kumquat a seedling tree.  I could not find a graft line.

That is the way my kumquat trees grew.  They filled out and look better.  Do not prune

Should not prune.  Your tree needs all the leaves it has until it is a good bit larger.

don't wrap.  It will hold moisture and pathogens against the tree.  Paint with latex white paint thinned by 50% water if you do anything

I have kumquats and I can assure you that is what kumquats do.  I am listening for an answer.

Hi  I am new to this group.  My main interest is kumquat, figs, sweet lemons, and valentine pomelo and that is what  I have.

I have one too.  I also am very limited on yard space.  It taste like a lemon without the acidity.  My tree is very young and cannot produce the sugars yet.  I only grow food I can't buy at the grocer or fruit stand.  My fruiting NZL is on C35.  I will be getting fruit off my NZL on Seville sour.  I'll see soon how those fruits are.  I plan to keep mine till it or I die.

It appears that the only affected citrus I have is New Zealand lemonade and Valentine pomelo.  The big question;  Does citrus on Seville sour orange rootstock get protection from the roots against HLB.  If so I am in great shape.

Citradia  Very nice looking Meiwa.  gives me a little hope on my 5 Meiwa trees.  My seed grown fukushu has its own winter enclosure

This is the same tree at progressive stages of growth after grafting.

Thanks  Millet
I forgot to mention that it has 2 lemons about 1/4 yellow.  I will find out in about 1-2 months.  The tree is small in a 6 gallon bucket.

I have a seed grown Fukushu/changshou planted outside in ground.  I have not gotten any fruits yet.  It has just completed its 4th year outside from 3-8-16.  I live in zone 6 Cincinnati Oh on the teays river bank.  I do not have any Idea how cold it has gotten for it but it is doing very well

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Frost Protection
« on: March 20, 2020, 07:10:58 PM »
I need to add that the glass used on my enclosures are made of double sets of Low-E windows.  My enclosure does not heat up uncontrollable on bright sunny days.  The biggest enclosure has plane glass at the bottom so that what heat comes in heats the soil to aid in roots moving water as  needed.  It holds heat down to 15F over night so that plants don't see  frost.  There is also enough humidity so that the inner layer of 4 layers glass can keep from freezing through condensation and at last freeze-frost.  still locked at 32F until the humidity is gone.  That takes a long time.  Heat of condensation 520 cal/gram.  Heat of fusion another 80 cal/ gram.  I plan to use an open barrel of 60F water as a heat source to provide the humidity to provide my condensate freeze heating system when the final shape of  my greenhouse is determined.

I am zone 6a=-10F so a 4 foot high PT graft will not be an option for me.  I can't protect anything that high up on PT and the tree above the graft.  I have thought about sinking my tree in a 3 foot deep well for a high graft to work.  I can't graft and would have to pay someone to do that for me.

My C35 defoliated and lost smaller twigs at 10F.  I have a changshu on C35.  Here in Cincinnati Ohio it has been outside for 25 of 31 nights in January. 17 out of 29 nights in February, and has only been inside for 2 nights in March.  Changsha dies long before C35 does in cold.

My cold protection setup.  On the left is my grafted Meiwa to kuharske citrange.  Middle picture left New Zealand lemonade on C35 roots. to the right Valentine pomelo on US897 root.  last picture is seedling Fukushu kumquat.  Structures come down after danger of frost has passed for my USDA zone 6a/b growing zone.

I am going to plant my seed grown meiwa kumquat tree in a raised hard pan clay hill so that it will grow in a slow cold hardy compact form to see how it handles cold weather.

What rootstock is your Marumi on.  I was looking for a Marumi on Poncirus trifoliata or  a seedling tree. I have 4 seedling Meiwa trees and a grafted Meiwa.  The grafted Meiwa is on kuharske citrange.  They are not compatible and tree just survives.
