Trying to save my Tango Mandarin video

Took a look at what was going on with my Tango Mandarin. Decided to pot it down and bring it inside for some intensive care. I just think this particular variety is not very cold tolerant. Plus we've had a lot of rain lately along with the cooler temperatures.

you may want to prune the top a little. kinda like with bonsai, since the roots are so dismal.

How can you have too much soil?

Too wet, yes. Too much?

All of that turface and perlite you added will cause it to retain even more water, I think that you are amplifying your problem here. It will need even less water.

RE: Trying to save my Tango Mandarin video

too much potting mix and it doesn't allow the moisture to evaporate as quickly, and also if the tree doesn't have a large root system the moisture isn't absorbed as quickly either, both conditions creates excessively wet potting mix.
