  1. Just getting started Review by Daniel
    How do you rate this product?

    At this point I'm giving the plants 5 stars because it's survived through a bit of an ordeal. I bought the plant about a year and a half ago in which time it didn't really grow much until I saw a YouTube video that said etrog should get a light feeding once a week. By wintertime it had grown a few inches but was pretty straggly so this spring I did a "hard prune" and clipped off the top of the plant so that it was just an 8 in bare stick in a pot. I continued the weekly fertilization and in a couple of months it has since put out a profusion of small branches and leaves, maybe about 10 branches. I'll have to provide an update this winter.
