How to Grow Meyer Lemons Indoors?

Can anyone tell me how to plant, prune, and care for them?

Container: For a plant that is 3-5 years old, a five-gallon container should be enough.

Soil: Sandy loam soil is generally favorable for citrus plants. An ideal pH range for a Meyer Lemon tree is 5.5–6.5.

Watering: Typically, this needs to be done every 7n to 14 days. In general, deep but infrequent watering is the most efficient method for citrus plants. To determine when to water, use a measuring gauge to check the soil two inches below the surface. If it’s dry there, it’s time to water.

Fertilizing: Using a citrus plant fertilizer, the optimal ratio is 6-6-6-2 with minor ingredients.

Pruning: When cutting toward the tree, keep the branch collar intact. Cells in the branch collar stimulate callous tissue, promoting the plant’s growth after pruning. Don’t prune more than 1/3 of the tree in a single year.

Light: Meyer lemons require about eight hours of direct sunlight per day to thrive. The ideal approach to light indoor citrus trees is with full spectrum grow lights.
