Edgar,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

In general orange trees need full sun, well drained soil, moderate soil moisture and moderate feeding with a complete fertilizer product in spring and early summer. The following web pages offer a lot of great info on growing oranges and other citrus in your Florida landscape:
