In the summer, as temperatures rise, your citrus tree may need to be watered daily. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. A good indication of when you should water is to check the top 2 to 3 inches of soil. If it is dry to the touch, your citrus tree needs watering. Houses generally don't have the humidity citrus trees need to grow. Mist or spray your citrus tree several times a week.
What type of fertilizer should I use on my Calamondin Orange Trees?
We recommend feeding your Calamondin Orange Trees with Espoma Citrus~tone. It is best to feed your plants by sprinkling one teaspoon of fertilizer on the soil surface per every 4 inches of pot diameter. Apply double for pots over 12 inches. Be sure to mix the fertilizer into the top layer of soil by using a fork to gently stir the fertilizer into the top 2" of soil evenly. With frequent watering of potted plants, nutrients may be lost and more frequent application may be required. Feed every 60 days in late winter to fall.
