So I'm walking around the plant section
Really needed some looks of plants, if you know what I mean.
I get smacked in the face from this really delicious smell.
I followed the great smell and found a little group of Tangarine trees. They all had dark green foliage, and the most fragrant beautiful white flowers! Ohhhh they smelled so good after a long hard winter.
I had to have one. They were all about 3 foot tall. I wasn't leaving without that smell.
OK. So, I have never had a citrus. Ever. So I run to Home Depo and buy a nice big self watering container. I figured it won't ever dry out in the heat of summer if I use this.
Well, I pot it up, and later on checked the citurs forum, and low and behold, the SWC is not good for citrus.
OK. Now it's dark out, but I ran to get another container for the tangerine so it didn't rot.
Wheww that was close.
It's transplanted into a regular container now, with well draining soil.
I think they are like Plummies, they can rot easy.
I watered it, in the new pot, and now I will let it sit.
It still smells awesome, and I didn't mind working with it.
My house is soooo small, and yet I buy another plant to try and squeeze in my shoebox house. LOL!
Anyway, it's outside and was outside at Walmart too, so it isn't suppose to go under 49 for the next couple of weeks, so I think I am safe.
Thanks for reading my rant.
I sometimes get nervous growing trees and plants I had never grown before.
But ohhh the fragrance on this Tangerine.
