Care information

Light: Provide full sun. I thrive in bright, direct sunlight for at least 6-8 hours a day.

Temperature: Keep me in a warm environment. I'm sensitive to frost, so protect me from cold temperatures, especially during winter.

Watering: Water me regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot.

Soil: Plant me in well-draining soil. A mixture of sandy loam with organic matter works well to provide good drainage and nutrients.

Fertilization: Feed me with a balanced citrus fertilizer every 6-8 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter.

Pruning: Prune me to remove any dead or damaged branches and to maintain my shape. Pruning after fruiting encourages new growth and improves air circulation.

Pests/Diseases: Watch out for pests like aphids, scale, and citrus leaf miner. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.
