Good day all!
I bought a young kumquat 5mo ago at a local nursery. There were only 2 & 1 though it had some fruit, was poorly shaped. Lopsided! I put it in 1 of those containers in which you can check H2O level through "hole" at bottom. Bottom can hold about an 1" of water & the plant can take it as needed. I feed w/ osmocote & sometimes add liquid miracle grow to the h2O I water w.
It's under a skylight w/ supplemental grow lights.
Will this be okay inside? Should I put it outside for summer? This is my 1st citrus. I've read they like LOTS of overhead sun.
Kumquat trees are the equivalent of a Christmas tree for Vietnamese ppl during Tet (New Year). They're displayed in city squares, malls & homes during that time. This tradition continues here in the U.S.
The health of your tree signifies the luck/health/prosperity for the coming year so it's success is closely linked to mine!
I've had 2 sm branches die back & a few leaves dropped. I've got to Feb 2014 to get her healthy, fruit & flower bearing. What can I do? Suggestions please!!
