Could anyone please guide me in any way? Anything would be helpful.
Thank you so much!
I think it may be the soil. I moved my seedlings to to containers. One with normal soil and one with soil designed for citrus and palms that's meant to be better draining. There was a clear difference in growth.
I'm curious if anyone has planted a whole lemon in the ground with any success? I have heard that it works, but until today I have not tried it. I'm curious if anyone else has ever tried this, and if it will actually produce. If no one has tried it before, I guess I will keep you updated!
I would cut the lemon and plant the seeds directly. You can even grow a tree inside. This video shows you how: https://www.you ch?v=57XoFG0QuMI
I have many lemon trees but have never planted a whole lemon :) Just use the seed.
I took several lemon seeds from a fresh cut lemon. A friend told me to put them in my mouth as soon as I take them from the lemon. Have your seed pot ready with seeding soil and push the seeds in about 1\4 inch. Water and keep the soil damp. It took about 4 weeks before I saw a seedling. I only got one out of the lot but it is now about 3 feet high and growing nicely.
I live in Greece, this is my very first attempt at home planting. I have two different pots with lemon seeds, one of them doesn't look so healthy. Can you help me to figure out why? I have them in a healthy enviroment, they get sun and water. Could this be because I left the small one in the sun for longer? Is it destroyed or can I still save it?
When your seeds first sprout you shouldn't leave them in direct sunlight at first. They need time to grow and get stronger. I would suggest moving these out of the direct sunlight. Find an area that is shady and receive a little sun during the day. Only water the dirt when it's dry. Don't over water or soak the ground.
