This article presents a couple of tricks on how to grow a lemon tree easily. Although lemon trees grow outdoors all-year-round in sunny environments, they can be also cultivated indoors in cold-season regions.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Organic lemons ( as non-organic ones have non-germinating seeds)
  • Fertile potting soil which comprises perlite, vermiculite, peat and natural fertilizers
  • Planting pot 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep
  • Seeding pot 24 inches wide and 12 inches deep
  • A sunny place in the house

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • First, water the potting soil. Make sure it gets damp, not soaked
  • Put some soil into the pot and plant the seeds after cleaning them well. The seeds have to be moist when putting them into the soil and half an inch deep into the soil
  • Spray the soil above the soil with a spraying bottle
  • Place a plastic wrap over the pot and seal the edges with a rubber band
  • Place the pot on a warm and sunny area
  • Spray on more water from time to time and don’t let the soil to dry out. However, don’t overeater the soil but try to keep it moist
  • The first sprouting will appear after two weeks. At this point, you should remove the plastic wrap and use a grow light, if necessary
  • Add moderate amounts of fertilizer, keep the soil damp and expose it to at least 8 hours of light daily
  • Try to keep the bugs away from the plant and remove dead leaves when needed. Feel free to use pesticides, if needed
  • Switch the pots once the plant becomes bigger than the pot. The procedure is actually the same and all you have to do is to make sure the plant doesn’t lack water

Even though it is much easier to get a lemon tree at the store, this experience cannot be purchased.  You will be very proud on your work and the tree will serve as great decorative plant for your house.
