Re: Greenhouse problems/Citrus

Yikes, that might be your problem...the watering rather than the pot  itself. 
 I might neglect my other plants, but I've learned to definitely  keep my 
fruit trees watered well, especially in the heat.  A few  trees might produce 
more when they are stressed, but I've found that  citrus is not one of them.  I 
have seen this on some of my other fruit  trees too, like the miracle fruit, 
starfruit, etc.

I need  to repot my citrus. I found out many of the tropical plants Lowe's
gets in  are field grown, thus root bound and will not thrive if not
repotted. Could  root bound plants be the problem? I do not overly fertilize
(I use kelp)  and water only when I think about it which sometimes causes
leaves to begin  to fall off! I do try to keep my greenhouse misted though
and now that this  one is built I do not plan to move any plants outside
anymore. It is just  too much work.
