Origin

Oceana is an intriguing member of the citrofortunella group, these plants, known as cold hardy citrus, are hardier and more compact than their relatives. Known for their distinctive small acidic fruit, they make excellent ornamental plants – none more so than Oceana. The orangequat is a cross between a Satsuma mandarin and a Meiwa kumquat, first hybridized by Dr. Eugene May in 1932. The mandarin is an important citrus plant – bearing the only sweet fruit among the parental species.

Flowering/fruiting

With larger leaves than a standard, generic kumquat, Oceana stands out from the crowd with a characterful eastern look. Like any kumquat, they maintain a small, compact form – but with much denser, dark green foliage. An exotic variety, the plant produces mature fruit from March and July, with a stunning display of vivid oranges provided by its miniature mandarin fruits. The mandarin is known as the sweetest of the citrus fruits, and although not quite as sweet due to the influence of the kumquat, Oceana lives up to its parent’s reputation with a delicious fruit with a subtle, sharp twist. The fruit are highly attractive, with the look of a bonsai mandarin, making Oceana a fantastic decorative choice for an eastern dish or, with its distinctive taste, as part of a fusion style cuisine

  1. Plants are living things, so we cannot 100% guarantee any plant will thrive in your space.
  2. Plants are perishable, and just like any living things require proper environment and care.
  3. When you adopt a new plant, you accept the risk that they will get sick or die, and think of that as a natural part of dealing with living things.
  4. Each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. Pay attention to the condition of your plant and its watering needs and you will have a long and happy relationship.
  5. We provide essential care instructions only but these instructions are just guidelines. Watering frequency, care routine will vary depending on temperature, air circulation, light and humidity in a space.
  6. If you see any signs of distress, we’re happy to advise — and provide answers to your questions if any — but, at the end of the day, you’re the plant’s guardian, and your plant can’t survive without your love and care.
  7. All plants go through acclimation period after being delivered and during major season changes. Some lower leaves might turn yellow or brown, plant might drop some leaves during these periods.
  8. Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).
  9. Plants sickness or death are things that occasionally happens to even the best gardeners for no apparent reason, or for a reason that is out of control – a natural part of the process of growing plants.
  10. Above all, make sure you’re ready for plant parenthood. Your plant relies on you to give it healthy living conditions.

 

Remember:

  • You loved this plant and chose to adopt as your new pet to brighten your day up, and so, you are completely responsible of their well-being that they can live happy and healthy forever.
