Did you know that you can start a real, fruit-bearing indoor lemon tree in a teacup or mug?
Typically, lemon trees flourish outdoors year-round in hot, sunny regions, but they can also thrive indoors as edible houseplants in cold-season climates.
These miniature citrus trees can deliver a big dose of cheer to any sunny space. And it’s practically foolproof. I planted seeds this April, enjoyed watching them spring up in the windowsill, have forgotten to water them for 7-8 days at a time, and 6 months later my little lemon tree forest is luxuriously green and smells fantastic. Best of all, they bear the exciting possibility of fruit!
