How to care for Lemon
Lemon needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Lemon may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Lemon in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Lemon after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I personally just got mine from seeds of a lemon in my kitchen.
They’re a great source of joy lots of new leaves in the first few months
Requires wet soil and will do amazing in a window sill
I love mine just because I grew them all the way from seedlings honestly
Just get some seeds peel them and place them in a bag or a container that’s seethrough with wet toilet paper as the growing medium
When it outgrows your container plant them in small pots and check the bottom every week too prevent rootbound
