Citrus Lemon Tree
There’s nothing quite as refreshing as the taste of lemon. Whether it’s freshly squeezed lemonade or a lemon juice squeezed on your favorite seafood dish, the taste and aromatic scent of this citrus fruit is delightful.
Wouldn’t it be nice to just grab a ripe lemon from a tree in your own garden instead of having to run to the grocery store whenever you get the craving for this delicious fruit?
When growing lemon trees in pots, the needs are very similar to lemon trees growing in the ground. The lemon trees will need good drainage, so make sure the pot has drainage holes. They will also need consistent and regular watering. If the container where the lemon tree is growing is allowed to dry out, the leaves of the lemon tree will fall off.
It is possible to keep your lemon trees inside. As long as they receive the proper care, lemon trees make wonderful houseplants and will be quite happy as long.
- If you intend on keeping your lemons indoors, make sure to transplant them into a pot that provides plenty of space for the roots to spread out and grow. The pot must also offer adequate drainage.
- We can’t stress this enough; lemons like water, but they cannot be left to sit in water-logged soil, as root rot will occur and the tree will die off. Place your tree in slightly acidic soil and fertilize it as needed; about once a month, on average.
- Keep your potted lemon tree in a warm, brightly lit location. The tree should receive at a minimum of 5 hours of sunlight a day. If you cannot provide the appropriate amount of sunlight, you may need to use fluorescent grow lights to ensure they get proper lighting.
- The temperature of the room should be about 70 degrees F during the day and 55 degrees F at night. If you meet these conditions, your indoor lemon trees should flourish.
- During the warmer months, move your lemon trees outdoors. Bees and other types of insects will pollinate the plant, which will increase the chances of fruit production.
