4. Do not pour water over your citrus trees

Watering a citrus tree is quite difficult depending on the climate, as the water flows more slowly in colder seasons.

The plant rarely needs deep watering, but how do you know if enough is enough?

Know your floor first. If your floor runs off well, you don't have to worry as long as you water it once it's completely dry. (You can water once a week in summer.)

The root of citrus trees is prone to root rot or phytophthora, as some soils retain water for longer. As with chlorosis, root rot turns the leaves of a citrus tree yellow.

You need to water your plant properly to avoid drowning. The ideal water level for citrus trees is about two to three feet deep.
