Calling all new citrus tree seedlings! I am announcing a new community the #CitrusGrandPrix

A Tree Race. And it doesn't have to be citrus. Plant an acorn, or pecan, just get a tree started!

I know what you're thinking,

"RJG that will take years"

My reply? Exactly.

All are welcome to participate and there is no prize except that we will have some baller trees in a few years. here are my two entrants in the #CitrusGrandPrix I will be adding them to Greg momentarily so we can track them better together.

Who's in?

@sarahsalith I know you have some seedlings of some tree or other
Some? Yes. I have some. πŸ˜‰

I'm so totally in!!
Here's a possible prize (that you will grow yourself in a race to try and beat my trees). It's my 5 year old (in July) orange tree grown from seed.
I wish I could participate, but I will be ROOTING for all of you! πŸͺ΄πŸ’•
Can I enter a tree that I grew from a seed about 15 years ago?
@kscape I mean you have years to enter.
@Pegster yes of course. It's still growing right?
This tree was grown from a Red Japanese Maple tree. It was transplanted to our present home about 13 years ago.
@Pegster do you have any baby pictures?
Not sure. I’ll look for one.
@Pegster that's amazing! Those Japanese Maples are on my #NeverAgain list. I'd love to hear your tips.
@sarahsalith We had two dwarf Japanese Maples in the landscaping at our Virginia Beach home. After 20 years, they started to get tired but produced a lot of seeds which we planted. We brought four trees here to Powhatan. They are not dwarf but they grew.
I have a strawberry plant and a grape one. Does that count ?
This is a small picture of the tree. Don’t worry about entering me in a contest. I just wanted you to see my plant before and after.
@Pegster first off,,, omg it's so smallπŸ₯ΉπŸ₯ΉπŸ₯Ή

And second It's not a real contest, just a joking way to start the #CitrusGrandPrix community. Please submit as many post of this tree growing as possible 😊😊
@jcPlantProper time to start eating my some oranges and gathering seeds Janai πŸ˜‚
I want to join and at least try. Are there any you'd suggest @sarahsalith and @RJG that may do well indoors under grow lights?
@AwesomePlants I think any plant can do well under growlights but maybe look for like a dwarf variety?
@AwesomePlants I've started all my seedlings under grow lights. I think I have four or five grouped together in my oasis under "s" after all the pothos and a few plants that start with "r". (:
Unfortunately all my saprolings are indoors, so I think I’d be setting myself up for failure unless you added a β€˜booby’ prize for least changed. ;)
@melodey πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG .... 😢😢😢
Well that obvi didn't go as i planned.

Welp. I guess I'll be doing a seedling race by myself!

....and I need to find a place to buy exotic fruit so I can join this Citrus Grand Prix 🀣🀣🀣🀣
