Calamondin

Calamondin

Originally the Calamondin comes from countries where a lot of citrus is grown. The roots of the plant can be found in Spain, among other countries. The nice thing about this houseplant is that you can also put it outside in the spring and summer months. In nature, the tree can grow up to 2 meters high. At your home the Calamondin probably won't be two meters, but the one meter should be able to reach it.

How do you take care of a Calamondin?

The best location

The Calamondin likes to get as much light as possible. Direct sunlight is therefore not a problem! As soon as you put the tree outside it is wise to put it out of the wind as much as possible. When the leaves turn yellow to brown the plant doesn’t get enough sunlight.

Watering the Calamondin

Do not let the soil of the Calamondin dry out completely. The plant has enough on once a week in the winter. In summer, as soon as the plant is outside in the sun, it can be watered every other day. Make sure you don’t give too much water. When in doubt, it’s better to water less than more. As soon as the plant is outside you have to be careful when it rains. If too much water remains at the bottom of his flowerpot, root rot can occur.

Plant nutrition

The Calamondin doesn’t need any extra power. Although we can recommend feeding plants at least once a year. Plant nutrition is only needed from spring to summer. By giving plant food you can stimulate fruit development. Never feed more than the recommended amount. Too much plant nutrition will acidify the soil, causing the roots to rot.

Repotting

We recommend repotting the Calamondin every two years. Use fresh potting soil and a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than its previous one. The best time to repot is spring. The Calamondin has enough energy to repair any damage caused by repotting.

Air purifying function

For an air-purifying plant, you don’t have to be at the Calamondin. Well, everyone’s qualities. Isn’t that right?

Is de Calamondin giftig?

De Calamondin sinaasappelboom is een kleine citrusboom die vooral als sierplant wordt gebruikt. De Calamondin sinaasappelplant produceert, net als andere citrusplanten, limoneen en linalool, maar ook fototoxische verbindingen die psoralens worden genoemd. Hoewel ze veilig zijn voor de mens, kunnen deze stoffen giftig zijn voor huisdieren.

Diseases and peculiarities

As the Calamondin in most cases stands outside a lot, it is a fairly strong houseplant. If the plant does suffer from pests or diseases, you can first try to get rid of them with a hard jet of water. You can’t do this? Then use pesticide to control pests or diseases.
