Deep Watering Method For Potted Citrus Trees

Trees will die without the essential requirements. Incorrect watering is the most common cause of issues and tree death.

Deep Watering Method

1. Check the tree with a moisture meter before watering. (The meter's range should be from 1-10)
2. The prong should be deep into the pot.
3. Only water when the meter reads 4.
4. All trees require deep watering. Deep watering is drenching the soil until water pours from the holes at the bottom of the pot.
5. Watering with a few cups is not acceptable, this will cause deep roots to die. Never be stingy with the water when the tree needs to be watered.
6. Once the tree has been watered properly, recheck the moisture level again to make sure the meter reads high (9 or 10) and then do not water again until the meter reads 4.
7. In the winter you will water far less, about twice a month (But always check the tree with a meter weekly because this can vary)
8. The meter should never be left in the pot when not in use.
9. Never water with cold water in the winter
10. Never water the tree with water from a water softener.
NEVER ALLOW TREES TO SIT IN STANDING WATER
A space between the bottom of the pot and the tray that catches the water is required.
