The Citrus 'Meyer' is a popular lemon variety known for its sweeter, less acidic fruit compared to traditional lemons. It's a smaller, more cold-tolerant tree, making it suitable for indoor growth.
Needs full sun, ideally 8-12 hours a day, for healthy growth and fruit production.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter.
Use a well-draining, citrus-specific or cactus potting mix, with a slightly acidic pH.
Apply a balanced, citrus-formulated fertilizer regularly during the growing season.
The Meyer lemon tree is naturally smaller and more compact than other lemon varieties, making it ideal for container growing. It typically reaches 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters) in height when planted in the ground, but can be kept at 3 to 5 feet (0.9 to 1.5 meters) with regular pruning when grown in containers.
