Anyone growing citrus trees?
I possess a dwarf banana, lemon, orange and tangerine tree and plan on adding a peach, apple and pineapple. Google leads led nowhere, except for a couple of sites that suggested drip irrigation, which I don't really consider hydro. Supposedly the roots need to sort of dry out, which would mean an Ebb & Floor type, or maybe aeroponics on a timer. I know a banana will grow great in a DWC system - I add a week per leaf like clockwork.
Ideally, I would like to grow these in hydro until at least next fall and if necessary until the spring of 2012 when I will give them a permanent home in my garden. Preferably, I do not need to do E&F but I might be able do aeroponics on a timer. My preference, simply because I have the equipment and it is the simplest, is DWC.
If you have any advice or experience, I'm all eyes!
