    Was this transplanted to water or were you considering coco coir hydroponic? Those little oranges on the plant were so cool! I don't know why your wife didn't want it in the house. It's so pretty to look at!

    this is not a hydroponic system

    Are you using hydroponic nutrients designed for veggies? Wouldn''t fruit trees require a much different set of nutrients? I would love to try this myself! But I am still in the process of researching, with next to nothing to go on. I'm wondering if there is a reason fruit trees are not popular for hydroponics…? Perhaps we just haven't gotten there yet.

    What did you use for the nutrient solution? And how much per gallon of water?

    hey larry, I have calamondin here in Mallorca Spain, winter is 10-15c usually, but it's in soil, I want to buy another one to try a coco coir grow with a wick system, you think it would work

    Nay! NAY! They can grow rapidly if they are receiving good nutrition and moisture. My container grown trees can have growth spurts of three feet or more in just a couple weeks!
    The new growth will be sappy and may need support until it hardens off in a few weeks. April 1st and my citrus are profusely blooming. I have moved them into the yard from out of the greenhouse. Citrus love epsom salt. If the leaves begin yellowing from nutrients being leached out by watering, I just toss a couple tablespoons into the pot and water in. They will green up in no time.

    That is some beautiful flowers. I would be so excited if my tangerine would start giving flowers. Cant wait to see to see the orange big and ready to eat. Love and Subbed.

    Most probably you had a pollination problem for so many fruits to fall, you should hand pollinate just to increase the fruit production.

    Very cool, we just bought one this summer and have it inside now (Michigan). Same thing happened with ours, lots of flowers and it looked like they were turning to oranges but then all fell off. Thanks for the sharing this.
