Will my Citrina grow a lot?

Dwarf citrus plants grown in pots exhibit distinct growth characteristics when compared to full-sized citrus trees planted in the ground. These differences are primarily due to the controlled environment a pot provides, including limitations on root size and available nutrients.

Additionally, dwarf citrus plant care requires special attention when it comes to adequate watering, fertilization, and sun exposure. The soil in the pot tends to dry out more quickly than garden soil, which may require more frequent watering, but always be careful not to overwater it, as this can lead to problems such as root rot.

The slower growth can be seen as an advantage for those who do not have enough space for a large tree. Restricting root growth in a pot causes the plant to adapt to limited space, focusing its energy on fruit production.

The maximum height that these trees can reach is around 2 meters, but this can vary considerably, depending on the variety and growing conditions. Proper maintenance, pruning, soil conditions, climate and water availability can significantly influence the growth and final height of your Citrina.

Although your Citrina grows more slowly, it offers the necessary flexibility to grow in small spaces and the right mobility to take advantage of the best sunlight throughout the year. With proper care, they can be just as productive as their full-sized counterparts.
