Some citrus varieties are particularly suited to containers as they don’t grow as large as others. Improved Meyer lemon, Bearss or Mexican lime, Claamondin Orange or Kumquat make great choices!
Citrus like consistent moisture. Prolonged dryness can lead to bud, flower, and fruit drop. Adding a fruiting hormone to your regimen is an easy way to increase the amount of your harvest.
The biggest mistake people make when growing citrus in pots is not giving it enough light during the winter months. Choose a very bright room, keep away from cold drafts, heat registers, and supplement with a growth light.
