|I got good advise in Feb. and put sand on top of the soil to get rid of the mites, but the leaves have not grown back. I have put them outdoors now that the nites are not freezing, how long do I wait to see if they sprout leaves? PS the soil has been moist under the sand. Should I also leave the sand in place?
|I'd leave the sand in place. It will keep future generations of fungus gnats from living in the soil. Citrus trees leaf out when the weather is warm so give yours a few more weeks to respond to the outdoor temperatures. I think they will recover. Have my fingers crossed for you!|
