How to Grow Lemon Trees in Containers

Anyone with a sunny window can enjoy picking their own fresh lemons at home! Here are some simple tips and tricks on how to grow your own lemon trees at home:

Potted lemon tree plant

  • LIGHT: Grow your lemon tree in full sun, a southern exposure is best.
  • TEMPERATURE: Maintain indoor temperatures above 60° for best results.
  • HUMIDITY: Keep humidity levels at 50% or higher if possible, however lemon trees will tolerate lower levels with no harm.
  • WATERING:  Bring the soil to a state of visual dryness between waterings. It’s best to grow lemon trees in a clay pot, which will help with increasing air exchange to the root system. When repotting, don’t over-pot. Keeping lemon trees a little under-potted creates a healthier environment for the root system.
  • FERTILIZER: Go easy on the fertilizer. 1/2 tsp of fertilizer per gallon of water every 2 weeks. Use a balanced fertilizer like a 10-10-10 or 7-9-5. Excessive fertilization can create difficulties in growing healthy plants, so it’s better to err on the lean side.
  • PRUNING: Prune young plants to encourage branching. This will help create a bushy Lemon Tree and stronger limbs to hold the heavy fruit. The best time to prune Lemon Trees is late spring after flowering and when in active growth.
  • INSECTS & DISEASE: For the most part, lemon trees are not highly susceptible to insects. However, they will attract scale, mealy bugs, and mites if infected plants are nearby. Citrus plants in general are susceptible to root disease, but following the watering recommendations and keeping temperatures no lower than 60° will help negate the problem.
  • FUN FACT ABOUT CITRUS: Did you know... All of our citrus varieties have thorns. They can be removed at no harm to the plant.
