I recently awquired a tangerine dwarf tree. It is full of blooms but the leaves seem to be curling up. They are still green.
Am I giving it too much water? It is in a Large container.

Some leaf curl is natural in citrus trees, especially in the new growth. Citrus trees like moist but not soggy wet soil so water your plant but then allow the top half inch to dry out before watering again. You can check the soil moisture between waterings by sticking your finger down into the soil. If it is still moist an inch below the surface it won't need to be watered for a few more days; if it is barely damp, it's time to water. Best wishes with your tangerine tree.
