  1. I’ve in my collection a leaf infestation symptom …many minute dot-like spots all over the older leaves of citrus plant, but the younger leaves do not show an scar or spots. Attached see the sample pics at you email. I found in Bangaldesh and Sri Lanka. May I know the name of infestation, causal agent or any environmental or physiological disorder associated with this type of symptom.

  2. Hi, I live in south east Java ,Indonesia . I own a few hectares of mandarin trees, I have been told by several growers in the area that they replace there trees every 6 years due to the tropical climate , they say the trees are always growing, that they don't get the cooler seasons here as in a milder region when the trees growth slows. I have friends in southern Queensland, Australia , that grow citrus ,I know some of there trees are 30+ years old and still bearing loads of fruit due to good maintenance , regular pruning and fertilizing . Are these local guys pulling my leg to get a $$ out of me for new trees or are they fare dinkum ?? . Any advice greatly appreciated . Lance Nicholls . joegroper@gmail.com.

  3. I live on James Island, SC and about two years ago, my daughter gave me a 3 ft naval orange tree. I planted the tree in a full sun, well drained location. From about March thru Nov, my irrigation runs about 20 minutes every other day. The tree is now about 10 ft tall and appears very healthy. It has not bloomed yet and we are approaching mid April. The tree is flush with new leaves. When can I expect it to bloom?

    1. Good Morning, Ron.
      Do you know how old the Naval Orange is?
      Do you know if it was grafted or from seed?
      Have you been feeding it at all?
      When you say full sun, how many hours would you say?
      Thanks!

  4. I really don't know anything about the tree. It was purchased at a roadside store along US Hwy 17 between Beaufort and Savannah. I think my daughter was driving back from Florida. As to its age, it was in a 2 gal pot and was about 3 ft tall but that is all I know. I have not fed the tree.

    1. Hey Ron,
      Believe it or not, the addition of your final sentence says it all.
      It gets sun from about 11 AM to about 4 PM.
      That is only 5 hours. Full sun is minimum of 7, 8+ is better. That is the reason it has not flowered.
      Yes, the tree will be healthy, but can not produce enough energy to flower.
