I may have mistakenly bought a Lisbon Lemon tree for my home. I told the salesperson that it was going in my home, they thought it was a great idea. How long will the tree be healthy in a pot indoors? How fast will it grow?

a bit of pollination assistance when they do flower. Use an artist's paintbrush or cotton swab to transfer pollen from one flower to another.

Just for the record, Lisbon Lemon (Citrus limon 'Lisbon') is a productive, commercial variety that is more tolerant of heat, cold, winds, and neglect than other lemons. Fruit can be harvested year round in most areas. In full sun, it's a vigorous growing to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide.

Take your tree outdoors during the summer months and it should live a long and happy life. a bit of pollination assistance when they do flower. Use an artist's paintbrush or cotton swab to transfer pollen from one flower to another.
