Plant Grapefruit Seeds As Houseplants

For some cold weather greenery that will brighten the house and last all winter, try filling a flat pan with rich dirt and thickly planting the container in grapefruit seeds buried one half inch deep. Keep the earth well-watered. The seeds will be slow to sprout but will be worth waiting for.

I love this and have done it for years. I plant grapefruit, and orange seeds. They make nice houseplants for several years, then make nice outside trees when they get too big for indoors. I never worry about whether they produce fruit or not since they were free. But if they do that's an extra bonus.
