How to care for Lemon Clover
Lemon Clover 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 Clover 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.

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 Clover after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Grows fast, dies back fast. Has a dormancy period but once it’s over it explodes. This is technically edible but the leaves and blooms are pretty. I have had mine outside in pretty direct sunlight for a lot of the day and it doesn’t seem to like the intensity. Part shade would probably be best.
