I'm sorry to hear that. I've damaged many plants by not acclimating properly. It's a pain to do but very necessary.

Is your rootstock still alive? How are you with grafting. If you'd like I can mail you a small cutting once the limbs harden a bit more.

I have a trifoliata that I've kept for novelty's sake, but I am unfortunately quite inexperienced with grafting. I've watched many grafting videos, including citrus specific ones, but have never really attempted to do so. I appreciate your offer but fear that I'd fail to graft properly, I should probably try to practice with some lower stakes varieties, lol



Thanks, this is some solid advice, I'll wait until the latest growth has hardened off a bit later in the season and try my hand at grafting.

My hands shake too.  I t-Bud but I leave the leaf on so I can manipulate the bud into position.  I wrap the graft above and below then cut the leaf off and cover.

It is Satsuma/poncirus chimera, occasionally pushing pure mandarin and pure poncirus (not a FD) twigs.
The prague chimera also gives twigs of poncirus with shinny skin fruits.
