CareGeneral Maintenance: If growing in a container, plant your tree in a large pot that gives the roots plenty of room to grow. Prune in the spring, when new growth emerges, by removing the dead or dying branches growing near the bottom of the tree.
Temperature: This tree prefers to be around 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.
Light: If planting outdoors, choose a spot in your yard that receives at least 6 hours of sun every day.
Watering: Water new plants twice a week until established. Once the tree is established, only water every 7-10 days. Never overwater your Mandarin tree.
Soil: Like all citrus, this tangerine requires a well draining soil, as it does not like soggy roots. Especially if it is being grown in a pot, you will want to ensure the soil is loose, perhaps even adding sand, moss, or vermiculite to help it drain well.
Fertilizer: Use a citrus fertilizer in March, May, and June. Follow the instructions on the package but divide the amount by 3. When applying the fertilizer, water the tree lightly to dissolve the fertilizer into the soil.
