Calamondin is an important citrofortunella, meaning that it is an intergenetic hybrid between a member of the genus Citrus and the kumquat, formerly considered as belonging to a separate genus Fortunella.
Watering: The Citrus needs regular watering in summer, but tolerates temporary dryness. It does not tolerate constantly wet soil. If the soil is well-draining, the Citrus tree must be watered thoroughly as soon as the soil surface becomes dry. Citrus plants prefer lime-free water.
Feeding: Use a special liquid fertilizer for Citrus plants once a month in accordance with the dosing instruction in the fertilizer pack.
Pests and diseases: Citrus trees are often attacked by spider mites, scale, mealy bugs, leaf-miner fly and vine weevils, especially if they are placed in a warm place with insufficient light. Use a specific pesticide and try to improve your tree’s growing conditions.
