IM new too gardening, me and wife started this year for hobby. We planted 10 citris trees and tring to learn all we can. I tilled 6 foot areas and planted them all about 2 weeks ago. There about inch high out of the ground and the base cleared of everything there all mulched about 5 inchs of red bark. I osmicoate fertilized them since im new not sure how it slow release last 6 months. Tilled it in a cap full instructuin said that would be 2 square feet sounds about right. We live in zone 8a/b louisiana I think all these trees do well here.

With watering I basically stick my finger in ground feels dry then soak them they all have 4 inch basic around the root ball. Ive read alot on watering them all seems to be how tree responds so pretty much just have to learn what they need I guess.

Any advise would be much appreciated I.m learning all just scrolling the garding forums theres so much to learn.
Here the all areea most of them shinny and plush looking.

Welcome maximus.
It looks to be powdery mildew to me. A cure for that is to spray them with soda water. Just soda like a drink mixer. Or you can add about a tablespoon of baking soda to a quart of water and spray that on it.
I would also recommend leaving a couple inches between the mulch and the trunk of the trees. They shouldn't touch.
