warm water vs. cold/room temp. water
I was wondering if anyone has experimented with using warm water during waterings as opposed to cold or room tempearture water and if it makes any difference. As the temperuratures are getting colder now up north, I know container citrus vitality can degrade if the roots get colder and the leaves stay somewhat warm (causing leaf drop). Reading through some old posts I see that some people use christmas lights to keep some warm on the soil or covering in blankets. In the colder weather, I'm only watering about every other day or every third day, so I'm not really sure if warm water would have any lasting benefits or if it would only temporarily warm the roots before they go cold again and cause more stress. Any thoughts?
