Dragon Heart Orange (0.9m)
For mandarin orange tree care, a sunny location is best and grow lights can be used to provide light to unexposed areas. Rotating the plant regularly also helps provide even light to all sides.
The trees grow best when then watered thoroughly and allowed to drain, then left to dry out slightly between watering. Fertilise every 3 to 4 months. Keep in mind, the mandarin will tolerate drought over inundation. Only prune your mandarin to remove dead or diseases limbs.

Soil for Potted Plants
Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
