How to Care for Arctic Frost Tangerine Tree
After purchasing your Arctic Frost Satsuma Tangerine Tree, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
How Often Should I Water My Arctic Frost Satsuma Tangerine Tree?
Arctic Frost Satsuma trees must live in moist soil and prefer a regular watering schedule. They are cold-hardy citrus trees and can withstand cold temperatures, but they must stay moist and well hydrated at all times. When potted, we recommend watering your tree until water runs out of the drainage holes, then you know it has been watered thoroughly. Be sure not to overwater your plant, this could cause root rot disease and damage your tree's growth.
How Much Sunlight Does My Satsuma Tangerine Tree Require?
When using this tree as an indoor/outdoor plant, place it near a south-facing window that receives an ample amount of sunlight. They can be placed on a patio display when temperatures are warm enough for them to live outdoors. Make sure your tree is getting enough sunlight, these trees love the sun! Arctic Frost trees can tolerate partial sun during the day, but if you want the most fruit out of your tree, be sure to place it in plenty of sun.
What Soil Should I Use for My Arctic Frost Tangerine Tree?
Arctic Frost Satsuma trees are extremely adaptable when it comes to soil type. They have no particularity to soil pH and are only picky about having well-draining soil. Because this tree is cold-hardy, it can live in cooler soil climates. However, Satsuma trees require soil that drains well to avoid any chance of root rot disease. This can be caused by overwatering your plant. If your tree is planted in a container, water the soil thoroughly, but don't be surprised if you don't have to water it as frequently. If you do not have well-draining soil in your garden, try planting the tree in a raised bed at least 12 to 18 inches about the soil line.
What Type of Fertilizer Should I Use with Satsuma Tangerine?
We recommend feeding your tree an acidic fertilizer every other month. This feeding schedule will help it retain the proper amount of nutrients without burning them out. When they enter their dormancy period, cut back on fertilizing. If you fertilize them during this period, they could be damaged and not produce much the following season.
