I have a tangerine tree that is kept indoors and I have located in a
easterly facing light. I purchased as a bare root tree and have had for 3
years. It has grown respectfully but to this day there are no blooms
and the leaves will curl and I'm not sure what I am doing wrong.
I also am not familiar with the proper pruning. The majority of the
branches are thin an will not sustain any fruit weight.
Any ideas will be appreciated.

Please ensure adequate light levels. Could you position it in a southern aspect? Regular generous feeding and watering is also advisable, as citrus trees are heavy feeders. Some seaweed based fertiliser will ensure a good supply of trace elements. Once the tree is flowering you may encounter male sterility, which means that in order to achieve fruit set, you need cross pollination. But not all tangerines display this feature.
