Q. is tropical soil good for all citrus?

I recently just started planting some seeds from the fruit I bought at the grocery store. I have some clementines, pomegranate and pineapple. I have been using just a tropical soil. . . says it has the right pH and a mix of compost, perlite, vermiculite, peat moss and a slow release fetilizer. Is this what I should use to start my seeds? Or is it for when they mature a bit? It doesn’t really say anything about this on the packaging. Any help would be great. Thanks.

The soil should be fine for starting your seeds. Once the plants have matured a bit, you can give them some fertilizer. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm

Q. Problem With Borer

I have a large number of citrus, limes, clementines, lemons and also my Griselinas trees seem to be affected by borer. Is there anything I can do, or do I have to pull them out? It is impossible to fill all the holes with a solution.

Q. Clementine tree

My clementine tree is planted outside in Arizona where we are having temps around 109 degrees at the present time. I water my tree every night with 4 gallons of water. Four days a week it also gets 4 gallons in the morning. It has many clementines on it and during the last 2 days it has dropped 2 clementines each day. I am concerned as soon it will have no fruit left. I don’t know if it is getting too much water, too little water, or needs fertilizer. Can you help me?

Q. Algerian dwarf clementine

I have an Algerian dwarf clementine indoors in a pot which has suddenly lost its leaves but the bottom ones seem healthy. I have repotted in a bigger clay pot, made sure it is not under or over watered and checked the pH level. Would you know from the attached photos what may be causing this? I am from Ottawa, Canada.

I am not sure why but the other photos are not showing with the current showing just the top portion without the leaves and only a few leaves at the bottom.
