Calamondin orange tree

Zone Vienna, Va | Anonymous added on March 30, 2017 | Answered

I have an indoor calomondin that has been in a sunny window all winter. The leaves are healthy and there are at least 50 new buds in the past few weeks. The problem is they aren't opening. A few have (5 or 6) dropped unopened and I'm concerned the others may just fall. Is there anything wrong or do they take a long time to bloom? I live in Northern Virginia and will be able to put it outside soon. I love this little tree and any suggestions are most welcome! Thank you, Cheryl

The buds are likely dropping due to lack of pollination.
