Favorite or New Plant

Meyer Lemon
This wonderful citrus plant is ideal for the home windowsill. It needs high light, but will thrive in the home since it is a smaller cultivar. The fruits are the juiciest you will ever taste. The plant is covered with fragrant blossoms through the winter, and although it will set fruit, you can increase the number of fruits by hand pollinating. The plants need moderately moist soil and regular fertilizing to keep producing fruits.
