Growing Citrus Trees (Lemon and Orange) From Seed - 47 Months

Growing Citrus Trees (Lemon and Orange) From Seed - 47 Months My Citrus Trees grown from seed are now almost 47 months old and it's time to get you updated on the Lemon and Orange Trees! They were sown from seed on 6/11/17. In this update, I will be repotting the orange trees (as well as the lemon trees - but not shown) into 5 gallon pots up from the 2 gallon pots they are currently in. I am mainly repotting them for a few reasons: 1) They are requiring more frequent waterings due to the pots being too small 2) The root system needs more space to branch out 3) The Texas heat (100 degrees plus) is coming soon and we don't want the pots (or roots) to overheat. Some info for the care of container-grown citrus plants: - Be sure you plants get 8-12 hours of direct sunlight (not blistering sun, but good sun) - Make sure the pot/container is well draining - Be sure to not let the soil dry out. Moist soil is better than not moist. - Supplement 2X per year with a slow release fertilizer (citrus is a heavy feeder) - You can use Neem Oil to treat pests like spider mites, or rubbing alcohol on mealy bugs/worms. - Citrus grown from seed takes 3-5 years minimum to flower, and sometimes it never does. I hope you'll enjoy both of my Citrus series'.

They should be kept in warmer conditions while they are seedlings (75-85 degrees) and water them infrequently, but heavily - allowing all the water to drain from the pot, keeping it moist only.
