Housewarming Calamondin Orange
Watering: Overwatering and underwatering can harm your tree. If the soil is dry 2 inches below the surface, you need to water. Water once a week and increase as needed. Sun: Full sun - 6 hours full sun. Pruning: Prune your Calamondin Orange in early fall or early spring. Remove thin straight, dead, or diseased branches.
Plant your Calamondin Orange in well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil around the hole and fill it with water. Fill back up with soil. During the growing season (spring to fall), fertilize your orange tree. Do this 3-4 times a year. Once early spring, early summer/late summer, fall.
During cold months, water your orange to protect it from root damage, if kept outdoors. Providing some covering for your tree can help on nights with temperature drops. If potted, you can bring your tree indoors. Keep in the coldest room where it can receive enough sun.
Potting & Container
If you are potting or repotting a Calamondin Orange, choose a 5-gallon or larger container. Ensure there are ample drainage holes. Fill the pot halfway with potting mixture for citrus trees, remove the tree from the original container, and fluff roots. Place your tree in the center of the container and add more potting mixture. Press down on the soil slightly and water.
