Trees in Containers
I have a small orange tree that I want to plant in a container. What is the minimum capacity (liters) for an ideal container?

The minimum really depends on the plant. The rule of thumb is to make the container at least 5 cm larger than the rootball of the plant. Keep in mind that if you would like the plant to stay in the pot longer without having to be transplanted, you will want to make the container larger.
