When do we recite the berachah for the arba minim?


Those who are careful to hold their arba minim (lulav, etrog, hadasim and aravot) all day on Succot (as recorded in Succah 41b) should recite the berachah in the morning before davening.

Those who are not careful to hold these species all day should wait until after Shemoneh Esreih to recite the berachah, because the more frequent mitzvah of davening has precedence. If they wish to observe the Sh"lah's practice of reciting the berachah in the succah, they should depart to the succah at that point to do so.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:99:1)

Have a great day,
