Definitely slow down on the watering. I water mine only when the soil gets dry. I stick my finger all the way down to the knuckle, if I feel any moisture I hold off. I wouldn’t transplant it at this point, just make sure it is never sitting in water.You may also want to check your soils pH, as citrus trees prefer acid conditions.

For the gnats, I would recommend a product we sell called go gnats or another product called SNS 203, both will control this issue for you. Both work as a soil drench to kill the gnat’s eggs.

You’re right that you don’t need to fertilize in the fall or winter. In the spring I would recommend a fruit tree fertilizer from Dr. Earth. It is granular, and releases more slowly so you don’t have to worry about burning your plants.

Good Luck
