CARING FOR CITRUS:


Citrus trees are one of our best sellers for very good reason. These gorgeous trees are not only stunning in your home, but low maintenance to care for. 


Citrus trees evoke a minimal, laid back, california vibe, and fit well in almost any home. Their fragrant blooms are like nothing else, enveloping your home with the ‘just cleaned’ scent of lemon and fresh citrus. It’s no surprise our best customers keep coming back for more.


SUNLIGHT:

Citrus trees love sunlight, and will do best directly in front of a bright window. Citrus loves to be warm, so keep them indoors in the winter months, and make sure your space is warm and bright. While these babies love light, too much supplemental light can make them drowsy. Avoid artificial light for more than 12 hours per day. 


WATER: 

Citrus trees love water and do not like to dry out. We recommend watering every 3-5 days in the summer months, and every 7-10 days during the winter. As thirsty as they are, citrus do not like to have their roots sit in water, so ensure your pot has ample drainage, or use a moisture meter to make sure you are giving adequate hydration without overwatering. These water seekers love a daily mist!


FERTILIZATION:

Citrus trees are a hungry plants and love nitrogen. When your tree is blooming or flowering it is putting out lots of energy and will need adequate nutrition. We recommend using a citrus fertilizer such as  Jacks Citrus Feed year round when watering to keep your plant healthy and happy! Avoid fertilizer sticks as they can burn the roots.

ENVIRONMENT:

Avoid cool spots and drafts in your home or office, choose a bright, sunny location away from any heating or cooling vents.


PESTS:

Like all indoor plants, citrus can get pests when kept indoors. One of the most common pests we see on citrus inside are spider mites. Check the leaves and stems regularly when watering for any webs or bugs. We recommend a good spray down with neem oil solution if any mites are found!
