    So winter temperatures for roots I have been keeping my pots temp between 23 and 25 and the sun may bring them up to 30+. For the winter limes and lemons should be kept warmer than the oranges and marinades but does any citrus need cool time a dormant period of so many hrs.??

    No. But some citrus have better fruit in slightly cooler conditions. Mandarins, navel oranges, blood oranges can all fruit in tropical and subtropical areas, but for optimum commercial growth and fruit production they need a little cooler climate. There is no true dormancy for any citrus fruit tree as far as I know. Sounds like you have reasonable conditions for the winter slow down.
