Great! I Hope Mine Will Start To Flush Soon Too. I think It Has Been Trying To Adjust To MY Much different Climate. We Have Had A Cool Wet Spring. Finally It Has Gotten Warmer But There Has Been A Lot Of Rain. They Went Through A Strong Windstorm Too Which Blew Off Most Of The trees Leaves. That Has Never Happened To My Trees Before. They All Look A Little Bald Right Now, Even The More Mature Ones. Thanks For Showing Yours.

Looks great trace. If you post your picture in portrait form you can get a picture twice the size as in landscape. See example

Thanks Mike its full sun about 6hrs a day mix is 1/3 e.b stone orchid mix 1/3 e.b stone cactus mix with 1/3 perlite. I feed it growmore orchid food with 1/4 teaspoon of growmore seaweed vitamin B complex mixed with one eye dropper of vinger. I mix feed I.to half a gallon of water I feed ever two weeks and water as needed once or twice a week. I am still work out my care program but its going good so far. Orchid food is close to the make up and micronutrient of citrus food. Orchid food doesnt have some of the magnesium to fix this I added the seaweed solution. I guess you could add magnesium salt however I feel the seaweed is more controled with less chance of salt burn.
Hope this helps I'm still learning as I go lol.

Tcamp, The tree looks great. Keep doing what you are doing and it seems likely you will have some fruit next year!

I've noticed the dekopan is pretty vigorous grower, even when they are holding fruit. Everyone needs a dekopan! Good luck keep posting! Ill post some pictures of mine soon too.

RE: Sumo tree I ordered from Harris citrus nursery!

Tcamp, all of these are bought from the same place you got yours. I have a 1 year lead on you - got these 4 early last year.

RE: Sumo tree I ordered from Harris citrus nursery!

Mike, I swear by osmocote and ironite about 60% 40%. I think its more about hot Greenhouse climate, short winter staying on top of bugs and most of all its something I love to do. Remember these are in a greenhouse :). Comon Mike, get with program - you need a Ghouse!

Trace, i am amazed at how fast these dekopon are growing. I think Ryan's trees have excited us all to the possibilities in the future. A greenhouse would be sweet! Well good luck all, and here is a picture of my first dekopon. Take care, Kev...

RE: Sumo tree I ordered from Harris citrus nursery!

Me too I'm amazed at the speed these trees are growing. I have no fruit yet but the new growth looks like it has some flower buds in it so hopefully I will get at least one sumo for next year. I have a greenhouse for winter so we'll see how it goes. Your tree looks beautiful by the way.
